The saying, 'quit while you're ahead' sounds great, in theory. The only thing is: how on earth are you supposed to know when that is? Too often we're confident that we're ahead of the pack, only to find, to our embarrassment, that we're trailing behind. Other times, we dismiss our achievements out of hand... it's only later that we realise how adept we were at juggling our issues. If you can say with complete certainty that you're ahead, then quit, by all means. If not, then nothing's lost by continuing.
