Mastering the Art of Quitting


Guest: Alan Bernstein

It’s that time of year when we take inventory of our lives – what’s working, what’s not working, and what we want to change when it comes to our relationships, our jobs, our finances, our habits, etc. Change isn’t always easy particularly when it requires that we admit our failures and give up on our goals. In his new book, Mastering the Art of Quitting, psychotherapist ALAN BERNSTEIN, argues that the most satisfied people have figured out to do just that –quit, refocus and redefine in order to move forward with their lives. As the new year begins, we’ll talk with therapist and author Alan Bernstein about when and how to quit.
