Young entrepreneurs and business men alike often tell me this when I speak to them. It’s a misconception, a myth.

Our parents weren’t entirely wrong in saying that persistence is necessary for success, but sometimes quitting is the most effective course of action. Whether it’s a failed project, a thankless job, or a doomed relationship, quitting can be a virtue. “Quitting is leading too.” -Nelson Mandela As it turns out, some of us are really......
