When the money’s been spent and things aren’t working out the way you intended or hoped it’s easy to think that by pushing through you’ll force success.
This is a refusal to learn.
You’re saying, “things are set in stone. There’s nothing I can do about it. I just need to forge ahead.”
But when the wrong path is chosen brute force doesn’t work.
More often than not we should be saying, “I was wrong. Let’s stop this madness before it gets worse. Let’s find the right path forward.”
