This American Life: the Quitting episode

I’m a firm believer that there are no coincidences, and here’s just another example. I randomly put “quitting” into google today and look what I found: a podcast from exactly 21 years ago today that interviews someone who views quitting nearly the exact same way that I do. Her name is Evan Harris and she’s the founder of Quitting Quarterly, which was a zine (remember those?) about quitting. She said the following:

“The word quitter does have a negative connotation, and that’s something I would really like to change. […] I see quitters as people who have volition. Quitters never win and winners never quit, that’s completely untrue. I mean really the more things you quit, the more things you’re going to do. And the more things you do, the more potential you have for success.”

I couldn’t agree more. If you’d like to hear the whole interview, it’s here:
