For instance, it seems we are not able to get programming support to improve this version of the Social Media Classroom, for love or money, since all developer energy is going into the next version. This isn’t true stasis, but it can feel frustrating when a specific small feature is desired, but unavailable.
The solution? Don’t get hung up on small things, and find the dimensions where movement is possible. In a sense this is analogous to eating a balanced diet. You probably shouldn’t only eat grilled cheese sandwiches, even if you like them a lot. You should go for something different once in a while.
This is also related to the pattern that talks about “Carrying Capacity“. There is always some dimension on which you can make progress — it just might not be the same dimension you’ve recently over-harvested!
