And then you find yourself asking if the goal is even worth the hassle. Maybe you're in a Dip: a temporary setback that you will overcome if you keep pushing. But maybe it's really a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better, no matter how hard you try.
According to best-selling author Seth Godin, what really sets superstars apart from everyone else is the ability to escape dead ends quickly while staying focused and motivated when it really counts.
Winners quit fast, quit often, and quit without guilt: until they commit to beating the right Dip for the right reasons. In fact, winners seek out the Dip. They realize that the bigger the barrier, the bigger the reward for getting past it. If you can become number one in your niche, you'll get more than your fair share of profits, glory, and long-term security.
Losers, on the other hand, fall into two basic traps. Either they fail to stick out the Dip - they get to the moment of truth and then give up - or they never even find the right Dip to conquer.
Whether you're a graphic designer, a sales rep, an athlete, or an aspiring CEO, this fun little book will help you figure out if you're in a Dip that's worthy of your time, effort, and talents. If you are, The Dip will inspire you to hang tough. If not, it will help you find the courage to quit so you can be number one at something else.
Seth Godin doesn't claim to have all the answers. But he will teach you how to ask the right questions.

no need to quit, no if you are willing for greatness!!! this book showed me the difference between having stress because something is worth or write because you are heading nowhere
I have to agree with some other negative reviews. the concept is great but there is no significant quality information given on how to identify a scenario where you should stick with it vs giving up on a lost cause. kind of a lazy book to be honest.
Just an average woman looking to better herself in order to help transform the lives of others.
Great book! This book is for those who are struggling and not sure if what they are doing is worth it. Discusses the concept of quitting in practical terms and teaches on when to quit and when to keep going.
I learned that the key to success is to be the best and not quiters. H
Those who quit can only average
This short book presents life's challenges from a unique and noteworthy perspective. To quit or not to quit, that is the question...and Seth's answer is right on target!
this book may be short but it drives home the point on when faced with a difficult decision if you should stay the course or if you should give up and focus on bigger better tasks.
