The Question Club
Say you had a kid who was, I dunno, about 8. He really really wanted to get involved in a long-term activity like Karate (or gymnastics, ballet, whatever, it doesn't matter...). After weighing the options for a while and seeing him convince you that he really wants to do it, you sign him up and sign the two-year contract. A month later he decides he hates it. He hates everything about it. He hates the people, he hates the hours, he hates the stances... But you're still paying monthly for the next two years (in which the only "outs" are permanent physical injury, moving 25 hours away, or death). Do you MAKE him go for the next two years, or let him quit and just keep paying for it anyway?|
Say you are 24. You decide you really want to take Karate. After weighing the options, you feel confident about signing the two year contract, confident you will stick with it and enjoy it. A month later, you decide you hate going. You hate everything about it. You hate the people, you hate the hours, you hate the stances... Do you keep going for the next two years, or quit and just keep paying for it anyway?
Why to both?
