Judgment That Defeats Us

I was just watching Apocalypse Now Redux for like the 100th time and there was this line by Kurtz
Because it's judgment that defeats us.
and it made me think.

How many times in our life have we failed to execute or take a risk because of our judgement. I mean look at Wikipedia. The first time I saw it, I remember thinking how was it ever gonna work. I mean who would ever take the time to write/edit articles for free, especially when the standards set for formatting was simply too high.

If I had dreamt of wikipedia, I'd have dropped it because of my judgement. But the truth of the matter is it worked. So how many ideas and dreams are lost everyday because of judgement?
