Episode #653 of Six Pixels of Separation is now live and ready for you to listen to.
I had the pleasure of hanging out with Alan Stein Jr. at a private meeting for professional speakers over the summer. I was super-impressed with his knowledge, capabilities and insights. Alan is a world-renowned coach, author and keynote speaker. He spent 15-plus years working the highest performing basketball players on the planet, and now coaches businesses on how to utilize the same strategies that elite athletes (like Kevin Durant) use to perform at a world-class level. Alan specializes in improving individual and organizational leadership, performance and accountability. He inspires and empowers everyone he works with to take immediate action and improve mindset, habits and productivity, which is why he recently published his first book, Raise Your Game – High-Performance Secrets from the Best of the Best. Want to raise your game? Enjoy the conversation…

You asked an excellent question on when to quit?
You never know since it may lead to something you never anticipated.
Here is a great example from history.
Gandhi was a total failure in South Africa and wanted to leave and return to India.
If he had left one year earlier, he would have died as M.K. Gandhi and not Mahatma Gandhi.
What happened was a strike by indentured laborers that gave him an insight that successful non-violent movement required people who were laborers and uneducated—masses. So when he left SA, he knew what he had to do to garner support and fight the British and gain independence for India. He succeeded.
He would have not gained this insight if he had left SA one year earlier.
So the answer to your question is that you never know but make sure it leads to something. I guess the right word is pivot.
You got me thinking. Thanks.
I really loved the show. Thank you! You mentioned two books in the show and as I was in the car I couldn’t capture them or look them up immediately. One was about habits and the other one I can’t remember. But they both sounded interesting. Can you post the titles? Thank you!
Ugh – not sure… was it Alan who mentioned them or me?
