‘Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize
how close they were to success when they gave up.’

— Thomas Alva Edison

Our next book is in the works.

Like The Practitioner’s Journey, part of the writing process is looking for patterns. I’ve been interviewing successful practitioners for the past few months, digging into what distinguishes the practitioners who make it from those who don’t. The traits of those who love what they do. The decisions of those who earn a great living, versus those who vanish. The behaviors of those who thrive instead of burning out.

There’s one consistent message emerging from these conversations: Practice success stories are stories of persistence. They’re tales of not giving up. Of embracing failure as a means of moving forward, not back.

That doesn’t mean that giving up is always the wrong choice. But it does mean that reaching success is going to require finding the thing you won’t quit.

    When is giving up the right choice? When and how do you start over the right way if you already quit?
