Changing The Way We Think about ‘Giving Up’

This week, the ABC investigated the concept of giving up on tasks, and whether quitting can actually be beneficial? We wanted to delve further into this concept and what it means to be an effective quitter. I am sure you, like me, have been taught to never give up and keep trying, but what if it is more productive to stop a task and start something else? Is this something we should focus more on in our lives? To help us investigate the motivations behind giving up on tasks, we were joined by Lisa Williams, Social Psychologist and Senior Lecturer The University of New South Wales.
