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.
