Time to QUIT?
I've been moody for the last day, because someone told me all of my post are starting to sound the same.
I just realised they are right, I need to QUIT. I have fallen into the trap of being comfortable, of not being worried, of not being risky. I wrote one post 2 weeks ago that took me a lot of courage to hit publish on. Being a success I started writing identical ones, and that has lead me astray.
The thing is I pushed the limit once, and people loved it, but now everything that has followed has been on the same level. Nothing has raised the bar higher. Although it has only been two weeks, I have fallen into a comfort zone. My solution is to quit!
We see quitting as a negative, because we are raised with the mindset that quitting is losing, and quitting is failing. But I can honestly say that we are wrong. Quitting might just be the best thing any of us can do.
As one door closes another opens. If you never quit, you will never know what is next. Not quitting is the same as settling. Not quitting is a predictable outcome, not quitting keeps you in your comfort zone.
I miss the stress of the unknown, the stress of staying awake all night thinking of what to do next. My life is hit or miss and that is the way it needs to be. Quitting opens you up for the next big thing, for the next huge idea, for the next innovation, for the next relationship, and most of all for the next chapter of your life. If you never quit, you never move on. We need to keep moving forward. When you do something new (a job, a course, an anything) you always have a learning curve, something that might last a year, other time only a few minutes. The second you reach the point where you are either bored, not learning something new, repeating the same task, or comfortable in anyway it is time to call it quits and move on the the next thing. The next adventure, the next challenge the next learning curve.
Not quitting is the same as reading the same page of a book over and over again. Like a never ending loop.
I don't want to know what I am going to write about tomorrow. I want to stay up all night thinking about it, challenging myself, pestering my girlfriend. If I know what I am going to do tomorrow then what will be the point? I might as well just relive today for the rest of my life.
I am quitting, quitting doing things that make others happy, quitting doing things that I find easy, and quitting doing things that I am comfortable with. I am even quitting posting at specific times of the day. From this point out I don't give a fuck, and that is the way it needs to be for you too.
