Hard News: To Quit or Not to Quit


(Not really!)

During my first year of this enterprise known as The Shakespeare Club, I wrestled on a weekly basis whether to pursue it or whether to throw in the proverbial towel.

I wasn't alone. The children of that first season also battled me and themselves. They quit, they came back, they quit and they stayed away as I juggled their roles up, down and sideways.

Quitting anything is big decision. Sometimes it's the right and only thing to do, but more often it can lead us onto a road of habitual running. Staying put, sticking it out and trying again can result in our owning a basket of rich fruit we might otherwise have missed.

But how to do it, how to persevere when it's so damn hard? This is a tricky thing.

Here is an article addressing this very question.
