Hey everyone, I started a project about a few months ago and have made some moderate progress. Before I started, I created a set of short and long term goals. I've achieved many of the short term goals and am working towards the long term. However, as I transition into the next phase of my project, I'm starting to realize that the whole project wasn't a good idea from the start. Here's why: This phase of my project is going to take either a sizable investment of money or and even greater investment of time. I don't really have the money and I'm uncomfortable investing what little I have when I am unsure of the returns. I'm not scared to invest, but I feel like there's too much risk at this point. I could do it myself, but it would take months and well over 500 hours. There is significant competition. I have ideas to make my site better than the competition, but that runs under the assumption that the project will turn out perfectly. Likewise, the advantages my project would have over my competitors wouldn't be that significant. I don't 100% trust myself. I've been working hard to not be a quitter but it's a struggle for me. I would hate to be balls deep in a project only to let it go. So my question is, when do you guys determine that it's okay to give up? I'm trying to think as rationally as possible. I don't want my emotions/fears to get in the way of my success. That being said, I also don't want my 'determination not to fail' to blind me into doing something that wouldn't be successful at all. You can spend years trying to teach a squirrel to fly but it just isn't going to work. My time could be spent elsewhere. Anyways, what are your thoughts? Have you had any failures that you've had to accept and move on, or is it better to have a determination to make things work no matter what?
