Jon Stewart on Quitting

“No, no – but some of it had been in the back of my head for quite some time. But you don’t want to make any kind of decision when you’re in the crucible of the process, just like you don’t decide whether you’re going to continue to run marathons in mile 24,” he says.

Self-awareness and proactivity are two sides of the same coin. If you’re self-aware, you know what you are and aren’t good at. If you’re proactive, you’re going to do something about it.

via @Joulee – great thoughts on interviewing for your next gig and some overall guidance for life. Knowing what you’re good at and what you’re not good at just makes you more approachable, more human. No need to hide what everyone else already knows: You’re not perfect.
