From Gretchen Rubin: It means, always be able to leave when you want. Drive your­self to a party instead of getting a ride, so you can leave when you’re ready. Try to go to someone else’s house, or a public place, instead of having people over to your house, because there’s nothing worse than seeing someone lean back and cross their legs when you’re ready to go to bed. Or else have people over to your house before some event – before a dinner reser­va­tion or a movie – so you have to leave by a certain time. · Go to Want to boost your happi­ness? Control your exit →
