The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
The problem is when we’re on autopilot for so long that we forget we’re on autopilot. Because when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us.
The people who are on autopilot tend to be those who have no sense of what they are doing or where they are in their lives. This can be particularly difficult when you have to stop and think about your own thoughts, habits, routines, impulses, and reactions. For example, if you are taking a shower, then you are in a state of constant self-awareness because you are aware of the fact that you are showering.
Similarly, if I get up and walk around my house or get dressed, I’m not only aware of the fact that I’m doing it, but I am also aware of the fact that I am doing it. I am aware of my surroundings, and I’m aware of my own thoughts and actions.
The other example of self-awareness comes in the form of social media. Here, you are aware of Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, all of which are aware of you so you can tweet about your random Facebook post.
And you are also aware that you are watching your mother, who is also aware that she is doing it, and you are aware that your father is aware that he is doing it.
The other day I saw a new job posting for a “JOB FOR SLOW PEOPLE”. They wanted to hire people who were “very slow and careful”.
I don’t think the job posting for slow people is a good example of self-awareness because I think it is more like saying to yourself, “I am aware that I am typing this on this keyboard.” While it is true that I am typing the words, it is also true that I am typing them in the wrong place.
The job posting for slow people is an example of what I call Self-Awareness. It was posted on the official website of the job posting company and describes itself as “a position for those whose job description is to be very careful, slow and careful, careful and careful, careful and careful.” The job description itself includes a list of things that slow people are not supposed to do, and you can find a picture of the actual job description in the description.
This is not a good thing for slow people. If we are slow, we can’t do what we’re supposed to do.
