Quitter’s Manifesto (Especially If You’re Not a Quitter)

Estimated read time: Less than a minute

A quitter’s manifesto for non-quitters, join me?

I quit thinking managing better is the answer.

I quit trying to make it all cram into one day.

I quit having my attention pulled in too many directions.

I quit others’ priorities.

I quit a constant drip of emails and Slack messages.

I quit the excuses that a salary wraps a comfy blanket around inertia.

I quit being dragged here and there by the tyranny of the urgent, rather than driving at the important.

I quit feeling cranky and dismissive of my kiddos, and my Wonderwoman.

I quit the blur.

And here’s my why.

What’s yours?


“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

Seneca, statesman and philosopher, circa AD 50

And friends, it’s not just about quitting, it’s about going.

Going to the Other Side.

If you’re interested, here’s where we’re headed (and why).
