When is it the time to let go off something?
I have a number of projects going on by my unit. Some of them work really good and some others do not. That is not something new or unique to me.
Sometimes, for the sake of better, bigger, or more promising projects, old, stagnating, and problematic projects need to be ended. I have decided today that I did not need any more struggle for a project of mine – it moved with the effort of a staff, very well actually. But when it came to organize the results obtained by this project, we hit a hard road. It has been some number of months. Enough is enough – the headache and extra time and effort I put into it is not worth anything any more.
It is a pity that we will not further pursue this project; a lot of exciting things could have been done, but prolonged hardship and negativity erases the motivation and removes the priority, especially when there are more exciting stuff, like new projects.
I did not make this decision very easily or suddenly; I have been thinking about it for some time. Finally, today with no regret, I made the decision.
It was the right thing to do.
And it feels right.
