“Practice the Art of Quitting” –excerpt by Michael Hyatt

Standard

I love this excerpt from Michael Hyatt’s “Shave 10 hours off your workweek” :

“My parents taught me, “Always clean your plate” and “always finish what you start.” But let’s not fool ourselves. The first one is a recipe for gaining weight. The second one is a formula for not getting much done.”

* you don’t need to finish every book you start
* you don’t need to complete every project you begin
* you don’t need to continue habits that no longer serve you

We need to cultivate the habit of non-finishing. Not every project you start is worth finishing. Sometimes we get into it and realize, ” This is a waste of time.” So give yourself permission to quit.
