Holding on to a bad idea, will inhibit new growth
Sometimes a great idea, hits a wall. There may be a copyright issue, or the project goals might have shifted during the process. Creatives have to know when to let go of a idea, and make room for new ideas. If the research was exhaustive enough, it might support new life in a different direction. In this plant, the roots were still alive, even though the plant appeared dead. Repeated watering of the plant, resulted in new life.
