Jumping Ship

            It is usually used when talking about quitting a project or situation that seems too challenging to complete.

For Example:

It can be used when talking about a person: “He is jumping ship on the project.” This would basically mean the person is quitting the project. It can also be used in reference to a speaker in a conversation: “It seems like I am the only one trying, so I am thinking of jumping ship on the project.”
