"Enormity"
If you've got a small, fixable problem, people will rush to help, because people like to be on the winning side, take credit and do something that worked. If you've got a generational problem, something that is going to take herculean effort and even then probably won't pan out, we're going to move on in search of something smaller.
- Seth Godin

The corollary to this is that there are a surprising number of intimidating but solvable problems out there.
