Being A Quitter: Not Necessarily a Failure

A couple of days ago, I handed in my notice at my part-time job. I'd been thinking of doing it for a while, but it took me a few weeks to really commit to the motion. I'm not a quitter, I told myself at the first thoughts of giving it up after only a few months in the job, I don't quit things: I worked hard to get here. I owe it to myself to stick it out. Winners never quit. The cliches flew through my head, and I'm not the only one thinking about quitting right now: New Year's resolutions are slowly fading away, with more and more people dropping out of my previously oversubscribed exercise classes (I won't lie, I wasn't a fan of the overcrowding). We could all benefit from considering why we quit things, when quitting is a good thing, and when it's not.
