Seeing Things Uniquely
One of Kyle’s favorite movies is Signs directed by M. Night Syamalan. Its story revolves around aliens that come to earth. Towards the end of the movie, you’ll find one of the characters sitting inside a room and has a tin foil hat on to protect his brain from alien mind control.
In life, we tend to take too much and just do what we’re told. We usually fail to go outside the box. For this, Kyle discusses the importance of listening and seeing things in a unique way.
Realizing the Power of Momentum
Kyle discusses the power of momentum. Consider the last time when you went on a vacation. It most likely took you a long while to slow down and unwind–to completely feel at rest after a busy life. Most likely again, the same happened when you returned from that vacation; it took you awhile to get going again.
Even without trying to think about it, you had work momentum getting into vacation. You came back afterwards with vacation momentum. Realize that both are powerful and difficult to break.
Momentum is similar to stoking a fire. Once we get it going, you can throw anything to the fire and it’ll burn. Once it sizzles, the heat momentum goes on.
Similarly in life, the hardest part is dealing with the metabolic engine in our brain. Kyle shares that sometimes we don’t have to know the exact goals we’re after. We just have to gain momentum and just get it going daily.
