Sometimes when you are trying something new (to you), it is met with the response, “We tried that.”
The implication, of course, is: “We tried that. It didn’t work. So it makes no sense to try it again. Don’t waste your time. We know how that will turn out.”
A great response? Let’s try it again now.
It might not work–like that time before.
But it might.
How will we every know–unless we try?
(What’s really at work here is our fear of failure or criticism.)
Let’s try it again… now.
