Deciding whether or not to give up

Consider these questions:

  • Do you have an obviously better opportunity?
  • What did you commit to? Predefine your commitment before starting, to not depend on momentary frustrations to make big decisions to quit or continue.
  • Would your future self feel regret or relief?
  • Do you need to give up? Or just take a break?
