Coonoor wrote the highly anticipated book:
“I Quit! The Life- Affirming Joy of Giving Up!”
Quitting carries a lot of stigma and shame in society, with connotations of “failure” or “not being able to stick it out” prevailing. Sayings such as “Quitters never win” have tricked us into believing that maintaining the status quo is always the “right” thing to do...or is the less risky choice. In fact, in life it’s a risk if you do AND it’s a risk if you don’t. Quitting is a choice...but so is not quitting.
This book is a collection of stories of everyday, real people and how they summoned the courage to quit things in their lives. Stories include quitting: jobs and careers, people and relationships, habits, aspirations, and identities. Every story shows an individual batting but ultimately triumphing over expectations - their own and others’ - to quit what was no longer serving them and make greater progress toward what they want in life.
