"You Can Complete a Project by Dropping It"

Quotables Productivity Priorities Goals Projects Work Burn Out Home Time Management

It may feel like every project you take on is important, but when you give your time and energy to something, it takes it away from something else. Sometimes the best way to finish a project is to just drop it completely.

If you feel a little overwhelmed with what you have on your plate, Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, has some valuable advice:

“Did you know that you can complete a project by dropping it? Any project that you’ve started in your mind drains energy. One of my favorite sayings is ‘100 per cent is a breeze, 99 per cent is a bitch...’ And that means often saying no to good things, to things that you might want to do, but get in the way of sleep, or get in the way of being with your children, or whatever it is that’s also very important to you.”

Don’t think of it as quitting. Think of it as completing it on your own terms with one swift action. You had a lot to do, and now you’re finished. Your project may not be completed the way you originally intended, but it’s completed to you. You’re done with it and can move on to things that deserve more of your time and energy.
