Something I’ve noticed in my work:

1) People tend to relax and stop growing when things are going really well, and most don’t seek out big changes and support until the house is burning down.
2) The state that you’re in when you seek out support determines what type of results you can get, and most people are going at it backwards.
3) When you’re in tons of pain, it's not super helpful to explore huge structural changes that will grow your ceiling.

The main thing you need in that moment is to feel the uncomfortable emotions, accept what is, and map out steps to survive and get your basic needs met.
4) When you're pumped up, confident, and relaxed, this is the time to strike and explore big new ideas to grow the ceiling of your full potential to a level higher than it currently is. In this moment you're actually able to take it all in and handle the extra load.
5) Most go about it in the wrong way—asking for huge structural changes when they need to focus on survival, and saying "I got this" and missing out on the giant growth spurt when they're actually available for it.
6) The more present and clear you are in the moment about where you are, the easier it becomes to give yourself what you need. Do this over time, and you become a person who consistently grows their potential while playing up to it as often as possible.

A thread on insights and intuition:

1) I recently heard about Ben Affleck asking a question on the set of Armageddon, regarding the best way to drill a hole on an asteroid:

Why wouldn’t you just train astronauts to drill, rather than train oil drillers to become astronauts?
2) Such an obvious plot to me hole now, but only after hearing him say it.

Reminds me of all the hands of poker I’ve butchered where I knew something was off, but missed a key detail that was staring me in the face and messed up a spot terribly because of my narrow focus.
3) We evolved as a species to sense imminent danger in our nervous system before our brains could identify it.

In that first moment our mind hasn’t located what exactly is off, but it knows for sure that something doesn’t make sense.

From there, we can locate the “what.”
