When Is It OK to Quit?

Finish Line

I’m a quitter. A non-finisher of projects. A dreamer and a planner but not always a do-er.

And I hate that about myself.

I debate with myself at times: is something worth finishing just to say I’ve finished it? Or is it better to acknowledge the sunk cost and move on to the next project or idea. I’m still not sure I always make the right call on that.

Surely I can’t be the only one who struggles sometimes to know when it’s wisest to acknowledge that situations change and perhaps a new course of action is in order. How do you decide when it’s something worth sticking it out to finish, and when it’s time to intentionally not finish?

And maybe I need to just accept that this is who I am, and when I’m done with something (whether or not it’s what I expected to be the finish line when I first started), I’m done and ready to move on to the next project/accomplishment/adventure.
