Sometimes, the hardest decisions involve choosing to let go, choosing to say no. Anyone who has had the slightest encounter with economics is familiar with the idea of “sunk cost”, yet even the most astute of us will sometimes forget this simple principle. I grew up being told to never give up, but the truth is sometimes, that is better option. Giving up is not always the easy way out, in fact many times it is much harder to make that decision than to just plunge ahead.
This is not the first time I have found myself taking up too many commitments, but I am going to do damage control before it’s too late this time. I’m not going to let my pride get the of me anymore. Ambition can kill; it’s time for me to be more realistic.
Don’t bite off more than you can swallow. I’ve been told this since I was a little kid, and I’m finally beginning to take it to heart.
