Why do you quit on the things you don't want to quit on? The human strength expert Kyle Newell talks about the popular topic of burnout. Tune in for some classic insights, so that you too may also discover why you quit!
Time Intensity Curve
According to Kyle, there is a need to leverage time and realize that chaos happens. It won't derail you completely if you plan for it.
“There is a time and place to quit when you know that what you are doing is completely up the wrong path.” -Kyle Newell
In the time intensity curve, the vertical line reflects the amount of intensity. The horizontal line, on the other hand, reflects time.
People become very intense when they try to make a difference in their lives or when they try to transform. But the intensity eventually fades away. The brain simply cannot pursue anything that is based on willpower.
Uninformed Optimism and Informed Pessimism
Underneath the short period when intensity starts to die, there is what Kyle calls uninformed optimism. You think that things will work because of your will power.
“The only way that you cannot succeed with whatever it is that you want to do in your life, is if you quit.” -Kyle Newell
On the other hand is informed pessimism. It is when you realize that things will be difficult because of the process it requires.
Consistency towards Mastery
Kyle writes about 2,400 words every day. He does it just within 40 minutes.
“It's an amazing to most people in life when you just consistently show up.” -Kyle Newell
Many tend to quit long before they even try to master things. You may have heard of the 10,000-hour rule. It requires focus, an intense area of study, and application.
