Stage Vs Step
Steps are staircases to nowhere.
It’s all about stages .
Stages remain fluid in all directions ready for adaptation.
Important distinction between step and stage and fluidity:
I DON’T ALWAYS GO IN ORDER
Sure you can skip steps or go up or down or stay put.
But you can’t go sideways and diagonally in every direction.
STEP VS STAGE
There’s a difference between the two.
Unfortunately, the ones using the currently popular stages are actually using steps while claiming stage presence/status.
It’s just a different name for the same thing.
Steps are up and down or stationary.
Stages move or don’t move in every direction. They’re fluid.
That’s what I do.
I have yet to see a person claiming to be using stages as a strategy go beyond the step strategy.
Researchers and those copying their methods try to standardize them.
Steps are by nature already standardized.
Stages on the other hand resist standardization at every juncture.
Thus: If a method has been standardized, it’s not a stage strategy. It’s not stages; it’s steps.
