Try Harder or Walk Away

One of the hardest decisions you will ever face in life, is choosing whether to try harder or walk away.

Is this really profound, or am I just being weird? It seems like every difficult decision I've had to made falls under this choice.


  1. If you're already trying hard, there's a good chance that trying harder will have a negative impact (regardless of whether your objective is met or not).

    "Fill your bowl to the brim, and it will spill
    Keep sharpening your knife, and it will blunt
    Keep seeking approval, and you'll be a prisoner

    Do your work and step back, it's the only path to serenity" - old proverb

  2. Nice, Jason.

    Knowing when to let go of something certainly is one of the hardest. From under my rock I say, aim for no regrets, then have none.

  3. Whoa! That's deep, you guys. Thanks.

  4. That old proverb is the Tao Te Ching. Check it out.
