In my last post Is Success or Failure a Better Teacher? a question was raised “If we never give up will we eventually “make it”, or is there a time that we need to gracefully retreat.” This opens up a whole new topic and I thought it was worthy of dedicating another post to that question.
My first response was “it depends”. It really does depend on many factors and in the video below I discuss a couple of times in my life when a graceful retreat was the answer.
I believe that there are times when we fail that we are actually “being tapped on the shoulder” to go another way. There are other times when we need to try another angle, strategy or just plain keep going. Have a look at my video and let me know what you think.
Please leave me your feedback – do you think there is a time to gracefully retreat?
