Peristence Is A Valuable Skill

It is a known fact that persistence is a requirement for every great success.

“Nothing in the World can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

Calvin  Coolidge

The question of quitting is a problem. Not everything merits your persistence.

Quitting effectively

There are two aspects to every project.

  1. The strategic goal
  2. The tactics employed to achieve it.

If you have a sound strategic vision. How about a replacement for the iPhone or a better search app than Google. Then it should make a very substantial revelation to quit pursuing that goal.

Tactics, on the other hand, are more pliable. You should work incessantly at improving tactics and their implementation. If a funding presentation doesn’t work, quit using it and try another approach or go to others funding groups. There is no shame in quitting tactical methods.

Quitting works when

Quitting works for you if you choose what to quit and what you are learning when you do. If the project is drifting and you are sure the strategy is good, the tactics are wrong.

“A minute’s success pays the failure of years.”

Robert Browning

The minute’s success comes when you find the right tactic set to match your strategic vision.
