You decide when to quit.

21 08 2013

“Pain is temporary.  It may last an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place.  If I quit, it lasts forever.” ~Lance Armstrong

 “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.  Then quit.  There’s no point in being a damn fool about it.”  ~W.C. Fields (I know I used this quote before, but I like it!)

 You may be asking “Which one is it, Jim?”  The answer is, “It depends.”  After all, management is gray.  You need to decide for yourself whether to try, try again, or quit.  That goes for your efforts to manage employees up or out, as it does towards trying to tease a little sense out of the data.  You’ll have to decide whether to try again, ask for help, or quit.  Just be sure that you can live with yourself if the answer is to quit. 

 In the snake’s case, quitting might be appropriate.
