Not very often, but sometimes.
- The right time is when you know you’ve done all you can, but it won’t work. There may be another way to succeed, and now’s the time to go find it.
- The wrong time is when you haven’t done all you can, yet. Most things are much harder and slower than we expect, so the toil should be expected, not resented.
- The other wrong time is weeks, months, or years after the right time was. Now you’re missing opportunities of what could be, which is the biggest shame of all.
No shame in quitting at the right time. Indeed, it may just be the path to success.
