There is a Moment

There is a moment when you realize that another path is better than the one you've been carefully following. You spot the advantages of a small team over a ponderous committee. The resources that once were deemed crucial are not really needed. Rigid deadlines become feeble barriers. Pompous gatekeepers are pushed aside. More work is done in bursts. And worrying about what this or that person might say is revealed for what it is: a pair of shackles.

Regardless of the specific insight, you begin to sense just how much fears and assumptions have been holding your back.

Stop raising the bar and making things difficult.
