I have a personal relationship with all of the people in this blog, so I am pretty sure this is the most true of them all. As I said before, I’ve had a lot of people with that problem, and I’m just trying to avoid them all. When I was doing my daily chores, I was being super-intelligent about what I was doing. That was the point of being super-intelligent.
When I was actually doing my daily chores, I was being super-intelligent about what I was doing. That is the point of being super-intelligent.
I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but it really isn’t hard to understand. Just like a car’s engine, you can’t just take your eyes off the road, and say that you’re “focusing” in a car. That’s like saying you’re “focusing” on your phone while you’re driving.
I would argue that being super-intelligent is about being self-aware. We are not only self-aware of our own behaviors, but also of others. The point of being super-intelligent is about being able to think about what others are doing, and what we could do to help them.
One of the reasons that being self-aware is difficult is because we tend to be very good at being self-aware. When I was going through high school, I had a lot of trouble doing the task of being aware of my own behavior. I would just look around the room, and say “I coulda been more aware of my mistakes.” The problem is that these kinds of behaviors become very automatic and unreflected.
It is actually this same problem with which the author of the book Self-Awareness by Adam Grant was dealing. He describes this as a “self-regulatory problem.” I tend to think this is an overly simplistic and overly negative way of putting it, but Grant’s book is about his own personal journey of self-awareness, and it’s written in a way that I think is worth it.
This is similar to the problem that many of you (myself included) have of not being able to take the time to reflect on our mistakes. We tend to do these automatic stuff, and then we don’t think about them or make any conscious effort to stop them. It’s like we forget we’re doing it at all.
Don’t forget to check out Grants book, because it’s the only thing our company has that allows us to do this.
Like all good company people, we’re a little bit of an asshole. We’ve been in this business for a long time, so we’re not just talking about this. We’re talking about the company that got hurt, the guys who were not as good as we were. We’re talking about the people who were not only hurt but who were not even the first time we’ve met them.
Its not that we forget where we are, we just forget that we are. Its like we forgot that we were in the game at all. Were talking about the people who are not only hurt but who were not even the first time weve met them. We were talking about the people who may be starting to see things differently. We were talking about the people who are in the game but not the first time weve met them.
