Quitting while you’re ahead

There are many reasons to quit:

You’ve found a better way to contribute.

The industry is dead or dying.

Your health is deteriorating.

But, “because you’re ahead”

Is not one of them.

The fear that you have peaked

Can strip you of the drive to create again.

And, yes, in times like these

Its increasingly apparent that what worked before

Might not work again tomorrow,

So the fear is real.

What’s also real is the fact that you managed before

To make something worthwhile,

To give something that people were glad to receive.

You delighted us before,

Who’s to say you can’t find a way

To do it again?
