I Feel Like Giving Up

Almost every day, in fact. Not all day, of course, but there are moments.
My bet is that you have those moments, too.

With these words, Seth Godin introduces us to “The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick).”

The Book in Three Sentences

  1. Winners quit the right stuff at the right time.
  2. People settle for good enough instead of best in the world.
  3. Being well rounded is not the secret to success.

In this iconic bestseller, popular business blogger and bestselling author Seth Godin proves that winners are really just the best quitters. Godin shows that winners quit fast, quit often, and quit without guilt—until they commit to beating the right Dip.

Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out fun…then gets really hard, and not much fun at all. You might be in a Dip—a temporary setback that will get better if you keep pushing. But maybe it’s really a Cul-de-Sac—a total dead end. What really sets superstars apart is the ability to tell the two apart.

This fun little book will help you figure out if you’re in a Dip that’s worthy of your time, effort, and talents. The old saying is wrong—winners do quit, and quitters do win.​
