Changing Reality with New Viewpoints
Every once in awhile we gain a new perspective that would change the reality that we live in. It may be something that we did not expect as we focused on reaching a specific goal. For this, Kyle discusses some valuable insights on goal setting based Scott Adams’ How to Fail.
Achieving Goals and Losing Purpose
Throughout our successes in life, we find the difference between goals and systems. Everyone is familiar with goals. However, just because we set goals does not mean that we’ve set them correctly.
As Scott Adams shares in his book, we exist in a state of nearly continuous failure that we hope will be temporary. Once we achieve a goal, as Kyle discusses, we celebrate and feel terrific only until we realize that we just lost the thing that gave us purpose and direction.
Setting Your System Right
When Kyle had his first bodybuilding competition in 2004, everything in his life revolved around it. It consumed him. He had his mind set on it everyday.
What nobody told Kyle about, however, was what can happen when the contest is over. He shares that if we fail to set our system right, we can go on depression. From his experience, he learned the significance of process in goal setting and wishes to share the valuable lessons with everyone.
