Time to cut the crap, and move on to something better?

The destruction = creation equation I know, but this is a new perspective that I find really intriguing. Might just give me an excuse to abandon my albatross of an unfinished novel and start on more exciting projects!

Abandoning your dwindling hobby, business, relationship, blog, or other pursuit is tricky. Sometimes, though, giving up can be exactly the right thing to do. The thing to take away from Glass and Godin is this: killing a failing project isn’t an act of destruction – it’s a powerful creative force.
