Do you know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em?

Perseverance is celebrated as a strength, as it should be. Sticking through hard times isn’t easy, and is often the make-or-break factor in pushing through to success.

However, sometimes quitting is for winners.

Staying in something too long when it isn’t serving you, others, or the world at large is not strength; it’s distraction. It’s a misuse of attention that could be better spent on moving forward in a better direction.

We all have that friend who stayed in their relationship too long when all the signs were there that it wasn’t working, and was never going to work.

We all know that colleague that put up with a lackluster work environment to get that promotion or recognition that never came.

It can be a difficult decision, but this month’s articles will help point you in the right direction.
