"Hello, my name is Peter and I’ve now gone two years without quitting anything.
The last thing was giving up law the moment I graduated from Durham University with a law degree. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not a quitter. I’m a completionist. Quitting is just an unfortunate side-effect of there being so many interesting things to learn about and only so much time.
I’ve always been this way - a bit of an obsessive dabbler. I reached grade 8 on guitar after three years of dedicated practice and have barely played since. I became the fastest student in my county to reach black belt in karate, but have only worn the belt once.
Fortunately, things have been getting easier. I think I’ve finally found a career where being deeply interested in one thing after the next is a blessing. And, because advertising is a career, it’s not something I can really complete so there’s no danger of me quitting."
