Valid point. Okay, are you doing this alone? Or part of a team?

The hardest part of leading a team is getting them moving. So you stand up, yell “I’M GOING THROUGH NUMBER 47! WHO’S WITH ME?!” and charge the door. And maybe #47 is locked. Maybe you keep throwing your shoulder against it and it doesn’t budge. But maybe somebody reaches around you, grabs the handle marked PULL (I do this occasionally with my wife, metaphorically speaking, and she has returned the favor), and you charge through together. Or you say “Screw this!” and try #48. But you try something.
