This is the email I get from folks all the time when I mention how I’ve been thinking of writing a book. They often ask why, when they have been reading it, that I would feel like writing it. I always tell them there are three levels of self-awareness. At the low end is just being aware that I can’t say “yes” or “no.
At the middle-level is being aware that you can choose to say yes or no. At the highest level are being able to know the difference between being in a situation that calls for it and being in a situation that doesnt.
There are three kinds of self-awareness: the ability to make choices, the ability to monitor yourself, and the ability to make decisions. I’ve learned that just because you’re aware of all three levels, doesn’t make them any less daunting. In fact, if you feel any sort of self-awareness is missing, you should probably focus on making your choices and monitoring your actions.
I think self-awareness is a lot easier to come by than the ability to make decisions. I think it’s a lot easier to feel self-awareness in situations that call for self-awareness. For instance, if you are trying to decide whether to take a class or not, you need to be aware of being in that situation or you could be walking around without any self-awareness.
One of the best ways to get self-awareness is to experience something that requires it. For instance, if you are trying to determine whether to take a class, you should be aware of being in that class. If you are trying to decide whether to take a job, you should be aware of being in that job. If you are trying to determine whether to do something, you should be aware of being in that situation.
You are on a mission in the desert, but you are not running away from it. You are walking around with no self-awareness. You might think you are walking around with no self-awareness, but you are not walking around with no self-awareness.
The same holds true for the people you’re meeting. The same holds true for the people you’re meeting. When you meet people you don’t know well, you might think you are meeting them well, but you are not meeting them well.
I don’t know anything about the game, but this appears to be how I feel too. I don’t know for certain, but I think I do, and I can’t explain it.
