Knowing when to quit
I don't normally think much about sports, but I do wish Brett Favre had figured out it was time to express his love of football in a different way, like maybe coaching, instead of trying to hang in there as a quarterback for another season or two. Or three. Or four. It's looking like he's decided he wants to top Vinnie Testaverde's record for most consecutive seasons of throwing at least one successful touchdown pass, and at this point that requires several seasons to go.
