Monday Morning Motivation – Quit

(Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially)

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement — along with a good cup of coffee! — to start the day.

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


Some words get a bad reputation.  Quit is on that list

The negative connotation that people have when thinking about quitting is often because they assume that quitting is associated with something good and something that should NOT be done.

  • He quit before he finished

Finishing = good, therefore quitting = bad

But what about the bad things that we are involved with in life?

  • Drinking too much
  • Working too much
  • Speaking harshly others

Wouldn’t we all be better off if we quit these sorts of things?

The reality is life is short and there are only so many things we can do; and, accordingly, deciding to QUIT doing the negative things is often the best thing we can do.  That is why I think quit has an undeserved bad reputation.

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • What should you quit doing?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning and I wish you all the best for the week.
