Maha, there may be an element of complexity in the acceptance process that sometimes sets things aside? The newness of what you are doing might also scare some people?
The fact is, things don’t move forward just because us totally advanced people think they should:-) Some things are challenging to the point of people reconsidering or retreating to a safer position. Sometimes we take people too far out of their comfort zone and they really can’t make a reasoned decision and fall back.
Another consideration involves resistance to change. It’s one thing to fool around speculating about new things and another to be presented with an example that proves it can be done. The consideration process suddenly becomes one of dealing with reality.
Doesn’t this all make you feel better?
