The step and the basket

If your roof is leaking, the water in the basement will gradually move up until you have a full flood.

And for most people, for twenty years, we get a little taller every day.

It is easy to take this physical reality and imagine that it applies to the way people improve their skills or organizations mature and grow.

But they are usually more quantum than that. One day we are on one state or scale or system and then we jump to the next level.

It’s not a curve, it’s a staircase. And jumping takes courage.
