Hey everybody! 🎙️ Welcome to another episode of the Be Better Tomorrow podcast. I’m your host, Jason Fisher, and I’m thrilled you’re joining me on this journey of personal improvement. This episode is something that’s been brewing in my mind for a while, sparked by various online discussions and debates. It’s all about the concept of quitting and rethinking the stigma around it.

If you missed any previous episodes where I touched on similar topics, I strongly recommend checking them out on our website []( or wherever you stream your podcasts.

Today’s Theme: Quitting
Quitting often gets a bad rap, seen as synonymous with giving up or failing. But is it really? Throughout this episode, I debunk this myth, exploring both voluntary and involuntary quitting, and why sometimes, it’s not only okay but necessary to let go.

Misconceptions About Quitting

– We’re often told that persistence is key, but what about when quitting can actually pave the way for better opportunities? Inspired by the works of Angela Duckworth and her book Grit, and insights from Chip and Dan Heath’s Decisive, we dive into why quitting shouldn’t always be seen as failure.

Quitting as a Strategic Decision

– There comes a point where we need to assess whether our endeavors are serving us or holding us back. We discuss the idea that quitting can be a sign of strength, as argued by Derek Sivers in 40 Lessons from a New Kind of Entrepreneur.

The Psychological Benefits of Quitting

– Quoting Brene Brown from Daring Greatly, we explore how quitting can lead to reduced stress and better alignment with our personal values.

Looking Ahead

Next week, we’ll delve deeper into self-assessment and goal-setting to help you make informed decisions about when to stick with something and when to let it go.
