I think that it works both ways.
1. When you don't want to drop something that doesn't work for you (relationship, work, studies).
2. To start something new - when you don't know the results.

People are scared of changes and things that they don't know. They prefer something worse but stable, than maybe better in future.

I know you don't seem to care much for Dogen. But he did write, "Shakyamuni Buddha abandoned his family and left his country. This is excellent precedent for practicing the Way."
