Where “push” must be strictly limited by a continual awareness that the
whole idea could just be bad.

If you find yourself in a tiny minority pushing for a change, it *could*
be that you have a great idea and the vast majority don't realise it
yet. But you must be realistic about the likelihood that the change is a
very *bad* idea, and frequently evaluate it for signs of that.
