You’ve probably heard of the three levels of self-awareness. The first level is the level of awareness that everyone has. The second level is the more introspective level of self-awareness. The third level is the level of awareness that is unique to you.
When I talk about levels of awareness, I mean the level of awareness that we spend most of our time on in our everyday lives, the level of awareness that’s unique to us, not the awareness that makes you smart and able to use your brain to get things done.
Level of awareness is the key thing in all of us. For a while, I used to go to the level of awareness on my laptop and look at the screen and then go to the level of awareness on my phone, but that was a long time ago. Now I’m doing other things and it’s just me watching.
We need to be able to have a level of awareness we want to have. The reason we don’t have a level of awareness is that it’s not our primary goal at work, so it’s more focused on getting things done in our daily lives. Level of awareness starts with the fact that it’s not about doing things, it’s about having fun. If we want to get what we want, we need to have fun.
Level of awareness can be a good thing. I have a level of awareness about the fact that I feel like I’m very stressed at work, and that there are three times as many people on the phone as there are people who want to talk to me, so I need to do more. This means that I need to take a few extra breaks, wear fewer clothes, and get more rest at the end of the day.
The thing is, we have to take the level of awareness to the next level. We have to be aware of ourselves. That means we have to be aware of our feelings and actions. Being aware of our feelings and actions means being aware of our past. Most of us have a lot of memories and feelings from our childhood, but these make up only a tiny portion of our lives. We don’t have a whole lot of memory from the past.
The reason that we have so many memories and feelings from our past is that they are stored in our brains. When we have a little bit of self-awareness, we’ll start to notice that our memories and feelings from our past are not as vivid as they seem. Rather than being a blank canvas, our memories and feelings are now filled with colors, shapes, and actions that we have no control over.
This is part of what I mean when I say self-awareness. You can’t control what you see, or what you feel, or what you think, so you have to rely on a little bit of meta-cognition. We are all on autopilot, but we are aware of what we are doing because we can see it, feel it, and think about it. Self-awareness is the ability to turn off autopilot.
The thing is, as we all know, autopilot is just another way of saying “I see things that I don’t see.” It is not self-aware of any sort of activity it can perform, but it is a powerful and universal tool.
Some people are trying to control their life by using this. The most common of these is: “How can I control my own life? I got a great idea for a new project but I only go to work when I feel like it,” and “I can do it by myself.
