You have probably experienced the “ceiling of complexity.”
This is the phrase that describes your feeling that growth has ceased and no matter what you do, you can’t get past the overhanging ceiling. Busting ceilings causes headaches!
If the ceiling of complexity is a malaise you are too familiar with, your platform is probably stale. Perhaps you haven’t been clear with your message. It’s more likely, however, that you just don’t show up in enough places, enough times.
A platform is where you show up day after day after day.
I know of leaders who develop a new platform and show up for a couple weeks and quit because they are “too busy.”
Today, they have a headache.
