We have a natural tendency to see the best in things, to put a positive spin on situations and to err on the side of optimistic - we are a nation of wishful thinkers. We are hard-wired to believe that if at first you don't succeed, try and try again. But hanging in there at all costs, and persisting no matter how many setbacks you face, is actually unhealthy and unbalanced.Give Up to Get On explains why quitting done right can be an act of self-assertion, a source of potential empowerment and a doorway to new possibilities.The most satisfied people know both how to persist and how to quit . They are flexible and adaptive to change. They know when to let go of unattainable goals and move on. And when they do quit, they do so decisively - and set new goals without looking back. Give Up to Get On will teach you how to make quitting a thoughtful and intelligent decision, which will take you out of dead-end jobs, doomed relationships, and flailing careers.
