Strategic Quitting!

I grew up with the phrase:  “Quitters never win and winners never quit.”  This saying drilled into me a “stick-to-it-tive-ness” that for the most part has served me well.

I’d like to challenge this age-old saying by stating that great leadership is a combination of staying and quitting.

Seth Godin, in his book “The Dip” refers to this a strategic quitting. 

Really great leaders focus on a few strategic endeavors and then, in essence, QUIT THE REST!

It’s just like the popular Kenny Rogers song  “The Gambler”,

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em, 
know when to fold ’em.  
Know when to walk away, 
know when to run… 

This week, consider the one or two strategic areas you need to focus on, and then practice strategic quitting.

All the best to you,
