Our society tends to place a negative connotation on the idea of quitting, which causes some of us to try to stick things out until we’re overworked, stressed out, or burnt out. On the flip side, some of us quit some things too quickly because it’s the easiest way out. In this episode of The Harbor by Jostens, Mike advises that it’s OK to quit something if you decide that your time and energy are meant to do something better or something more you.
