OK, so it's my opinion then, that we shouldn't take inadequacy "lying down"—but then, why not?
Perhaps it's much easier to operate in the same ways as before. You know them, you know how to do them, and you know roughly what you're going to get out of them. Tomorrow isn't such a mystery. It's predictable, it's less risky, I can do it and I might be OK.
But I won't see the things I need to see unless there is a serious shakeup. It all has to be thrown to the wind, so that I can decipher what the actual problems are for myself, rather than listening to everyone else's guesswork.
Without all this distraction, when I am able to focus on the real problems at hand, then will I make real progress?
What do I want to see in my lifetime?
