That does not mean that I do not continue working on a solution and often I am successful in finding a solution or at least a workaround. But when people ask me about a topic I mostly do point out possible pitfalls and obstacles that might come up while implementing a solution for the particular problem.
I do not really see this as being negative - I always find it realistic considering the most probable hurdles. And often a set of little issues can reduce general feeling of satisfaction. I just want to avoid such issues in the beginning by choosing the solution attempt where less issues are expected to come up (according to experience and feeling in the belly).
But however, most people do not want to hear about (possible) problems. They "simply" want to have everything working - no discussion - they don't accept problems.
Today I discovered that they are right:
There are no problems - just expectations might be too high!
And I am not responsible for other people's high expectations. That is something they have to live with.
