Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.

Quitting isn’t just for losers. Sure, there are those people who quit because they’re lazy or lack the courage to take on their goal. 

But my guest tonight, Peg Streep, is the co-author of an excellent book about judicious quitting -- quitting to get ahead in your job, your social world, and your relationships. The book is the science-based “Mastering the Art of Quitting: Why It Matters in Life, Love, and Work,” co-authored with therapist Alan Bernstein. 

Join us tonight as she explains how to know when it’s over in love, work, and beyond, and how to engage in mindful and intelligent “disengagement” from goals that have outlived their usefulness so you can live to the fullest in every sphere of your life. 

Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.
