It can be done

The key to my workplace comes with a chip, and the battery in my chip ran out.

I tried to open up the key and look for a battery compartment, but I could not figure it out where it was. I made a note to reach out to my office administrator to ask for a replacement.

A colleague then told me that we had an internal wiki page that described how to change the battery. On hearing this, I looked at the key again and found a small notch. Once I turned this notch, the battery compartment gently popped open. I didn’t need to look at the wiki page at all. I merely needed somebody to tell me that it can be done.

We are prone to think of several possibilities, both trivial and non-trivial, as being out of our reach. To realize them, we merely need a reminder that they are within our grasp.
