When you tell me “it” can’t be done

Mission Impossible Possible

There are several reason why someone may say these immortal words

it can’t be done*

We’ve all been there, your having a discussion in a room full of people where a potential change, fix or innovation is raised and someone will inevitably abruptly jump to the conclusion without any investigation that “it can’t be done”

No I’m sorry but…

  • You disagree with doing it
  • You may not want to do it
  • You may not be able to do it
  • You may not know that you’re able to do it
  •  You may have failed in the past while trying to do it
  • You may be afraid to do it
  • You may not be allowed to do it
  • You may think that you will not get the support to do it
  • You may think its worthless to do it
  • You may have political reasons why you don’t want to do it
  • You may not have the money to do it
  • You may not want to spend the money to do it
  • You may not want to invest the time to do it
  • You may think the organisation or team can’t do it
  • It may be stupid to do it

But rest assured, given enough time, energy, resources and motivation

“It can be done!”

On behalf of all the people who come from a place of “can” and “do” please step aside and let us get on with the business of making it happen.

*There are many legitimate reasons that we should not do something, but that is very different to saying that “it can’t be done”
