This Might Not Work: The Flipside – This Might Work

Why are we willing to try things when this might not work?

Because it might work.

The only way to change things is to try things that might not work.  This, of course, does not guarantee that things will work out – your idea might be truly crazy or impossible. But we have to aim high.  The reward when we do is that this might work.

Innovation is challenging because to innovate we must seek out uncertainty.  For most people, this is not comfortable, that’s why we don’t like “this might not work.”  Nevertheless, if we want to do work that makes a difference, that’s where we need to be.

To grow we have to try, stumble, and learn.

So give it a go.  It might work.
