Yo’s Feb 12, 2024 appearance on Nicole’s Podcast:



Here are three takeaways from the series:

1. In our culture we see grit as a virtue and quit as a vice. Per Annie Duke: “Success does not lie in sticking to things. It lies in picking the right thing to stick to and quitting the rest.”

2. Any decision is made under some degree of uncertainty – we don’t have crystal balls and new information will always reveal itself.

3. External validation increases the escalation of commitment. Fear of how others will view us if we quit are usually overblown.
