I am a fan of models which show progress in stages. The most famous stage model in psychology, albeit not the most accurate one, is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. In the age of limitless information it’s easy to get lost in a sea of unconnected bits and pieces. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed. We often think of limits as something bad, like for example limiting beliefs, but sometimes limits can be good as they guide us through a process. Stages tell us what to focus on now, what to keep an eye out for later but also what not to worry about just yet. If you are feeling lost or overwhelmed either google a model that corresponds to your topic (eg. stages of financial independence) or try to bring some stages to your experience. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It just has to provide some limits.
