There are many times when quitting is the smartest thing to do. If you’re hitting your thumb with a hammer, don’t try to do it better or more efficiently – stop hitting your thumb. Quit – look for a better alternative. Don’t focus on the humiliation of quitting or consider it giving up. See this as a go-up opportunity. Quitting or giving up on the thing where you’re just mediocre or that is making you miserable is not a humiliation – it’s a brilliant decision to move to something better. It can free you up to move into your Zone of Genius.

Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real-life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable. This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die. Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.
Thank you for being a listener of this podcast. I love hearing from you and being allowed to think through the questions we all have about finding or creating work that matters, for people who care.
I’m Dean of Students but was just arrested and am now on administrative leave. I think my career in education is over.
My question is about when to ‘cut the cord’ on a business idea you’ve started working on.
My encouragement is to try something for a year to see what kind of traction you can get.
Dan, what are your thoughts on doing business together with friends at church as a group?
Dan – I’m in the late 3rd Quarter of life. Is there a time for a comeback?
Look for a unique solution that fits you.
Quotation:“Quitting a job doesn’t have to mean giving up. A job is just a tactic, a way to get to what you really want. As soon as your job hits a dead end, it makes sense to quit and take your quest to a bigger marketplace - because every day you wait puts your goal further away.” Seth GodinClick To Tweet
