This book is based in science—what psychologists and researchers know about human behavior and motivation, and what scientists know about the brain. It looks at quitting as art that can be mastered and will help you understand how developing your ability to quit in balance with your ability to persist will make you happier and more satisfied with the decisions you’ve made. It will get you unstuck when you’re stuck and help you move on in life. The only way to reset new goals and open up new possibilities is to let go of old goals entirely
