I’m a serial quitter with two PhDs, two degrees and countless jobs behind me, and I have no regrets

For years, we’ve been inundated with hysterical headlines about how empowered, delicate, and narcissistic millennials are. And now it’s Gen Z’s turn to rake over the coals. “Work shyness” seems to keep coming up as a reproach. This week, a Deloitte poll revealed that half of Ireland’s Gen Z workers plan to quit their current job within two years. And not just in Ireland. In April alone, 4.4 million people in the US, most of them under the age of 26, quit their jobs. Experts speak of the “big layoff” when young people give up their jobs in order to find a better work-life balance and more favorable conditions.

he negative notion of quitting is a holdover from the “Job for Life” era. Quitting – work, studies, relationships – is seen as problematic. It’s flaky. Egotistical. Weak. It’s the polar opposite of all the things that are considered “good” traits in humans. Consistency. Mission. Loyalty. Never give up. Quitters never win and winners never give up.
