If the shoe doesn’t fit

Cinderella’s sisters would do anything to get their feet into the glass slipper.  They cut off their toes, and when that didn’t work, they tried trimming off a bit of their heels.   All they did was create a bloody mess.  The slipper wasn’t designed for them.

In business, it’s sometimes desirable to present your ideas in a format people are more comfortable with.   That’s always something worth exploring.  If you want to change minds, it’s helpful to start with the familiar as a way to introduce something new.

Be careful though.

If you find yourself mangling the idea to make it fit, this shoe is not for you.

Find (or make) a new one.
