self-awareness is like the first step in understanding. You know that an object, plane, or person is there, but you don’t really know if you’re aware of it or not. Without self-awareness, you might think things are black and white, but without self-knowledge, you’ll be able to see that the world is more complicated than that.
An example of self-awareness is listening to a lecture about your field. You’ll hear the professor say that you’re all “good” at this because you know the material well, but at the same time, if you weren’t paying attention to the lecture, you’d be thinking, “Ugh, I should really study this stuff,” right? Self-awareness is knowing that that is not true.
The problem is that, at times, self-awareness is blind. This is where self-knowledge kicks in and tells you that your self-awareness is wrong. In fact, with self-knowledge comes a kind of meta-awareness where you are able to actually observe that your self-awareness is wrong. Of course this is also a good thing. But it can also become a problem if you get to the point where you are becoming self-aware of what you are doing wrong.
I’m talking about when you’re so self-aware that you’re not even aware that you’re self-aware. And that is when you are in the middle of a project and you realize that something isn’t right in your project. Sometimes in the middle of a project you are able to see that your project isn’t going the way you expected it to.
I have to say that this is one of those things that I would like to add to the list. I have a number of projects that Ive been working on for the last year or so that I have been working on for a while. But because I havent been working on them as much as I should have been, I have been working on them with less and less care. Ive been working almost purely by chance when I get confused.
I dont always know what the hell I want to do with my life. I also usually don’t have a good way of deciding what I want to do with my life. So I tend to just do the things I like to do. I also tend to fall for the things that seem to be the most popular things to do.
You know, the most popular thing to do is to make people angry, and then write about why you might have made them angry.
I want to make people angry! Why am I making people angry? Is it because of my job? If so, I need to get a better job. Is it because I have a bad attitude? If so, I need to change my attitude. Is it because I have a bad hair style? If so, I need to change my hair style. Is it because I have a bad personality? If so, I need to change my personality.
