Crippled CEO Blog #157:
A while back, for reasons I do not recall, I decided I wanted to try and write down my dreams. I had friends who could remember all of their dreams, and they had dreams almost every night. Meanwhile, for the last decade, I had been a person who either wasn’t dreaming or just never remembered them.
My process is this: if and when I wake up in the middle of the night after a dream, I tell Siri to make a note, and then dictate what I remember about the dream.
I often times don’t even remember making the note, and will discover them in my phone days later.
Because dreams are weird, and because I am dictating my recollection of them while half sleep, I find the notes to be pretty entertaining, and I thought that you might, also. So, I am sharing them.
But aren’t you supposed to learn something here? Isn’t that part of the point?
I’m sure I can think of something helpful to connect to this.
Oh! Here we go…
I thought I was a person who did not remember his dreams, and that was just an unchangeable fact about myself. But then I put a new system in place, and this immutable characteristic was suddenly changed.
You might also be one habit change away from changing something about yourself that you think is a permanent fixture. The dream thing is silly, but there are lots of negative identities we give ourselves that we don’t necessarily have to live with, e.g. I’m always late, I can’t wake up on time, I binge sugar late at night, I hate disabled people (just me?), I’m bad with money, etc. It is easy to give up and think these are just parts of who you are, but there’s a chance a new system or habit could change this fact entirely.
Anyways, the weird dreams are below as screenshots of my notes. Let me know your favorite.
