A distraction from what?
Projects succeed based on the number of tries, not the best
planning. Things work largely by serendipity. It's not a
distraction to try try again. It's a different platform, shepherded
by a different person, at a different point in time?
Successful ventures can't be planned out like requirements documents
for the space shuttle. Shit happens at random. You take some swings
at the ball and sometimes you connect and sometimes you don't. You
miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
