Strategy or Habit
Football teams usually punt on fourth down. This isn’t quitting. It’s a strategic move that places the ball in the other team’s hands in hope of getting it back with better field position. Not all quitting is as strategic as this. There is a difference between quitting when things get harder than you anticipated and quitting to fight another day. Great teams know the difference and wisely quit as a strategy. Other teams quit as a habitual response to adversity.
