Don't Overstay Your Welcome

When your host starts cleaning up and moving plates, it’s time to take the hint and leave. Don’t overstay your welcome.

Those we admire most in sports, business, politics, and entertainment tend to share one quality: They knew when it was time to quit, time to pass the baton, time to disappear, in a way that preserved, even enhanced, their reputation.

Nothing diminishes past success like overstaying your welcome.
