It's healthy to set complex goals that are a stretch but will force you to step outside your comfort zone and work extra hard to accomplish that goal. Sometimes those goals are personal and sometimes they're professional. Sometimes they're attainable and sometimes... they're never going to get completed. So, is it alright to quit? According to this video from Med School Insiders, it's not just alright, it's encouraged!
An important step to working on any project is knowing when to evaluate and know when you need to keep pushing through or when it's time to quit. As the video explains, the decision is not easy and requires many considerations, but it's an important question to ask yourself in order to maintain maximum productivity and, more importantly, your health. As Kenny Rogers says "You gotta know when to hold'em, and know when to fold'em."
