In Mastering the Art of Quitting the authors show us how to let go when we need to and how to start over. A guide to increasing our emotional and mental flexibility, assessing our goals, and knowing when to hang in or bail out, it tackles our tendencies to overanalyze, ruminate, and put a positive spin on situations we actually need to avoid. In a culture which perceives quitting as a last resort, Alan Bernstein and Peg Streep show that it's an essential tool for a happy and successful life. They reveal simple truths which apply to goals in all areas of life including love, relationships, and work, including:

  • Quitting permits growth and learning, as well as the ability to frame new goals.
  • Without the ability to give up, most people will end up in a discouraging loop.
  • The most satisfied people know when it's time to stop persisting and start quitting.
Quitting is a healthy, adaptive response when a goal can't be reached.
