They say success is a staircase not a doorway. Great metaphor for taking baby steps one at a time. Also in there is a metaphor of baggage. We can’t bring all of our bullshit up these stairs. It’s impossible, we have to let some of it go.
This is where we plateau. Where we can’t move forward because we are anchored to the past.
Normally this would be a conversation about having to make commitments and tough decisions, but this pandemic and resulting system shut down just did all of that for us. Our plateau just got blown up and we have no choice. It is mandatory to level up, which means it is mandatory to sort out all this baggage.
