QUITTING: A LIFE STRATEGY The Myth of Perseverance - and How the New Science of Giving Up Can Set You Free

by | Read by Hillary Huber

Personal Growth • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Julia Keller examines the cultural aversion to quitting, concluding that despite its bad reputation, quitting pursuits that aren't working is actually a valid survival strategy. Hillary Huber's straightforward, clear narration is a natural fit for this manifesto on reassessing one's values and goals. She describes the feeling of self-loathing at not fulfilling a goal, which she says can be indicative of a lack of fit, rather than a personal failure. Covering futile pursuits, quasi-quitting, and embarking on multiple careers, Keller shows that quitting can, in reality, provide an opportunity to refine and achieve our own vision of personal success.
