“The lie we all believe is that you have to stick with it.  You can’t quit.  You are what you are.  But that’s not true….  It’s called the sunk cost fallacy.  This is when you stick to what you’re doing because you already invested your whole life in it.  For example, you won’t quit your job (the job you hate) because that’s what you went to college for or because you’ve been doing it for 20 years and change is scary.” -James Altucher
