Imagine if you had a square block and you’re trying to fit it into a round hole. The size of the hole is roughly the same size of the block. You keep trying to push it in, but of course it doesn’t go in. You try to put it in from a different angle. You think maybe a different side will work. Still it doesn’t go in.
You push it really hard through thinking the force will squeeze the cube inside the round hole. Doesn’t help at all.
How long would it take for the square block to finally go through the round hole? It’ll never go in the way it is.
This is what we try to do when we try to get the result we want. We try to force our way in. We keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results. We think, somehow, that by the power of a miracle the block will go right in.
That’s got to stop.
Let’s go back to the example. How can you fit the square block into the round hole? You have to try a different way.
So you get some tools and cut away the corners. You try to fit it in and it’s better but still not going in. So you keep chipping away at the block until it finally fits into the round hole.
