Quit while you're ahead in order to prevent failing, so you don't win or lose.
i dont quit get that one
Well the saying that winners never quit is a bad one. <br />
Take for instance a stock market investor picking a company and investing in their shares. If the investor does not sell (quit) that stock when it is at it's high they will end up losing money. Because they did not"quit while they where ahead".<br />
Also famous sportsman who get long term endorsments contracts after they retire from their sport usualy do so because they retired before they lost their top performace ability and therefore their fame and reputation was not harmed by staying in the sport too long they do well in their post sporting carriers because they "Quit while they where ahead"
Oh, that was me actually. Sorry, stupid idea.
no fool - your first two presumptions are false
someone who NEVER quits is deranged, for they have no comprehension of their own boundaries, so they come to grief slowly or quickly - sometimes the only way to transcend a problem is to surrender to it, because only then when we've stopped hammering at it like a robot do we actually reflect and find a new way around it, or over it, or to just accept it - to even presume that life is as simple as winning or losing is hardly a "winning" attitude - for a strong will wedded to bad intuition eventually wrecks itself
