    Stage 1:
    Walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find my way out.

    Stage 2: I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in, again. I can’t believe I am in this same place. But it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.

    Stage 3: I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I fall in….it’s a habit….but, my eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.

    Stage 4: I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.

    Stage 5: I walk down a different street.
