Maybe the trick isn’t sticking everything out. The trick is quitting the right thing at the right time. The trick is understanding that saying “No, thank you” to something you’re expected to accept isn’t failure. It’s a whole other level of success.

It takes courage to quit something, but often you get that courage back with dividends. The older I get, the more I find that a good quit feels powerful. Deciding what you won’t have in your life is as important as deciding what you will have. Trying out something you expect to love, realizing you don’t really love it, and giving it back—that takes guts. It means understanding that success isn’t about nailing every role; it’s about choosing the roles you’ll play and how well you want to play them. -Mary Laura Philpott
