I came across this interesting item last week, which describes how a person’s world view was changed by way of technology. It got me thinking about how wedded many of us are to doing things the way we have always done them, or how others have always done them, or, in some cases, not doing something at all because to do so would require stepping far outside our own comfort zone, whether behaviorally, technologically, from a values perspective, or for a host of individually specific reasons.
Questions: Do you allow yourself to be stopped by perceived barriers to implementation or just ideation? Have you ever taken the time to explore your motivations when faced with such a barrier? What do you lose or gain by allowing such a stoppage? What can you do to stop the stoppage?
