How To Quit

How To Quit

By Stephanie Seferian

Quitting is aerobics for your brain; it's also the counterintuitive secret to success. Today I bring you a conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Julia Keller about how to view quitting not as a pejorative but instead as a tool for swapping one destiny for another.  Here's a preview: [5:00] How the self-help movement created our anti-quit bias [9:00] The similarities between honeybees and Simone Biles, with a nod toward strategic quitting [17:00] How do you quit a high-stakes situation? (Answer: quasi-quitting!) [23:00] Words of encouragement for listeners concerned they'll regret it later [27:00] How parents listening can best support their children when they want to quit  Resources mentioned: Pre-order Quitting: A Life Strategy (to release April 18) Orlo Nutrition Join our (free!) community here Find your tribe. Sustainable Minimalists are on Facebook, Instagram + Youtube Email me and say hello! MamaMinimalistBoston@gmail.com Our Sponsors:* Thank you to LifeStraw! https://lifestraw.com/Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/sustainable-minimalists/exclusive-content
