It’s very difficult to get a fresh idea through those addicted to routine. Their thinking grooves have become ruts. They don’t see doing the same thing over and over again for a long period of time as habit. They prefer words like consistency and continuity. They aren’t just comfortable with year-on-year sameness, they’re proud of it.
The issue often becomes not so much the acceptance of something new, but the ability to let go of the old.
