Dreams, Your Process and the Kwisatz Haderach: 3 Lessons from ‘Dune’

Dune discussion. This is a great story for everybody. It takes itself seriously, but it takes the audience seriously, too.

And it was certainly one of the best movies of 2021.I can’t recommend this one enough, but even if you haven’t seen it yet, put on your space helmet, sit tight and listen. We’re about to pick this mythic, epic, excellent film apart to find the nuggets of wisdom most pertinent to the entrepreneurs, self-improvers and all-around goal crushers among us. This is , after all—it’s what we do. Let’s dive in.Our first takeaway comes from the very first scene of the film.

It’s a strange sound (listen to the podcast to hear it) accompanied by words that appear on the screen: “Dreams are messages from the deep.”This little quote gets almost no direct explanation in the movie, but we later hear the fabulously named Duncan Idaho (​​Jason Momoa) issue a retort: “Dreams make good stories. But everything important happens when we’re awake.”I love that. The two messages come together perfectly to speak to anyone who has a vision for how their life, their career or the world should be.

Your dreams are important messages from your true self, and sometimes they inform you and push you forward in ways your conscious mind alone might never have.But when you’re awake, that’s when you . Marry the two, and you’ve got messages from the deep informing your conscious processes. That’s a goal-achieving formula if I’ve ever heard one.It’s not hard to see how this plays out in the non-movie world.
