Transitioning to something new is hard work because you don’t always know what you are transitioning to. Sometimes, it could be that the skills are not always in place to make the new a reality.

The danger here could be that you keep trying the same old trusty ways to solve these challenges and end up going more in circles than towards a new pathway.
