When to Quit

Quit when you have an alternative path that will give you more growth, passion and fulfillment. 

If a new experience will be better, then switch to that. There is no shame in leaving a path that has become barren.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Instead of judging whether or not you should quit pursuing your dream based on your chances of success you ask a different question. Would I like to experience building a business from the ground up?

When pursuing a dream you have the underlying assumption that when you reach it you will be happy. That is false. 

All efforts towards correctly pursuing your own personal development must take into account reality, not how you think the world should work. The truth is reality isn’t fair and just trying your best towards your dream doesn’t always cut it.

Almost no popular self-help authors are going to have had the experience of pursuing a dream (like becoming an author) and not having it eventually work out.

Where there is a will there is a way, and will is mostly affected by dreams.
