Have you ever quit something too early? Perhaps you started a new diet and were not seeing the results that you wanted as quickly as you wanted to, so you stopped. Maybe you started a business and quit before you were profitable.
How do you know if it’s time to quit or rest?
When you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed out and feel like there’s too much on your plate, your decision making energy is at a low. When you’re trying to make a choice in regards to something important in your life i.e. job, relationships, career, health, etc. you want to considering being in an energy rich state.
You will not reach the energy rich state you need to be in to make good decisions from a worn out place. The first thing you need to do is rest.
Take time for yourself. Nap, sleep, take care of your health and well being. When you feel fully refreshed, then it’s time to decide if you should continue down your current path or if it’s time to quit.
Far too often, we quit when the going gets tough when what we really need is to rest.
In business, it is said that it takes 5 years in order to be profitable. It you kept quitting every time you got tired, you would never see the results of your labour. For dieting, it takes about a month to get into a routine and then there’s a matter of sustainability after that.
When you first get started out in a venture, take into account that the usual time frame is to see results. Do not compare yourself with the best case scenario. Instead, prepare for the worst case and schedule time to take frequent rests in between.
If you’re in a great state and you find it’s find to quit. Celebrate what you have learn in your journey and leave with grace.
