The Option of Letting Go of Our Goals Is Right Here

Consider taking it

Goodreads clearly displays the “Update Progress” button under every book you’re currently reading.

Where’s the “Drop the Book” button though?

You need to look for that.

This, I believe, reflects what many of us think: quitting a project, a goal, or a career midway isn’t an option, or at least it’s not an obvious one you should consider.

But that option is always there.

Had I not taken it, I wouldn’t be reading a much more interesting book than the one I was struggling with last week.
