“You can’t do that!”
This sentence is usually followed by “Because it’s too hard or tough or different or complicated or risky or crazy or high or …whatever.”
Apply wisdom and learn from the counsel of trusted advisors.
But keep in mind that “You can’t do that” usually means “You can’t do that the way I’m thinking you’ll have to do that in order to do that.”
The best way to respond to this kind of criticism is not to argue about why you can do it.
The best way is simply to do it.
