When you introduce a "new thing," you are at the end of your thought process (which may have begun months ago).
Everyone else is at the beginning. They can't get where you are without you sharing your full process including your own apprehensions.
Isn't that what you need in order to commit to someone else's idea?
1. Tell people what you want to accomplish.
2. Tell them what led you to believe it's important to them and to you.
3. Tell them your own struggles along the way.
4. Tell them how long you've been thinking about it.
5. Tell them you are committed to it.
6. Tell them your plan for helping them be able to do "it."
Then, give people a reasonable amount of time to:
- Think about it
- Question it
- Be uncomfortable with the newness of it
- Begin to accept it
- Be involved with how it will be implemented.
We simply need to give people enough time to catch up with where we've been.
