Exploding Limitations

kcsi_concepts

Are you struggling with an impossible-looking task? Don’t give
up just because people tell you, “It can’t be done.” Almost
every great idea or invention in history started the same way.

When trains were first invented, several “experts” agreed
that if a train went at the frightful speed of fifteen miles an
hour, the passengers would get nosebleeds. In addition, they
would suffocate when going through tunnels . . .

In 1881, the New York YMCA announced typing lessons for
women. Protests were made on the grounds that the female
constitution would break down under the strain. . .

When the telephone was first invented, Joshua Coppersmith
was arrested in Boston for trying to sell stock in a company
that would build them. The experts said that all well-informed
people know it is impossible to transmit the human voice over
a wire. . .
