I remember a conversation I had with my friend Nick Miller, who is a well-known author and speaker. He had written a book about the psychology of addiction called “The Power of Choice”. He asked me, “do you think there is a self-awareness of our choices”. I replied, “yes, I do”.
Nick asked me what was the most important aspect of that self-awareness. I think it’s the ability to name it. That’s very important, because if we don’t name it, we don’t know what it is.
The most important aspect of self-awareness is the ability to name and identify your choice. We must be able to identify the choice we want to make, for example, “I want to build a swimming pool.” Even if we don’t actually know what it is, we can decide to do it because it’s clear to us what we want to do.
Myself and I are working on a project that will help people do this. Our goal is to help people be able to name what they want to do, so that they can plan, make choices, and execute those choices.
Self-awareness is a good thing, but we must also be able to name our habits, routines, feelings, and reactions. It is important, but it is extremely difficult. For example, if you have a habit (for example, a pattern of waking up early or eating late) of checking your phone every hour, you will be unable to name your habit.
To get to your habit, you must first name it. To start naming your habit, you must first name the habit. You can either do this by naming your first habit, or you can do this by doing something about it, like buying a new phone or investing in a new bed. Either way, you must identify your habit. By naming your habit, you become the one who is responsible for taking care of that habit.
No. I’m just trying to make a point here. If you’re a self-aware person and you don’t get distracted by your phone’s notifications, you can’t help yourself from getting in the habit of checking it every hour. You can’t stop yourself.
The problem is that you aren’t the one responsible for the habit that you are now. It is not your fault, and you might be able to change the habit by changing your behavior. Just make sure you are aware of it and take steps to change it.
What a beautiful idea. The idea that we all should be responsible for our own actions and reactions is an excellent counterpoint. It will also be interesting to see if we can use that as a lesson in our own behavior which will be very interesting for our friends and family.
This is a big topic. I know that I personally am a little obsessed about this topic, but I’m also aware that I’m not the only one. I’ve been trying to get my point across for a long time and I think that I finally have.
So, in short, you can be responsible for your own actions while being unaware of your actions and reactions. This is a good point because we all tend to ignore (and in many cases, even blame) our own actions in the name of our friend, family, or partner (and even ourselves) when they don’t conform to our expectations. This is a good thing, because those actions are often the cause of our problems and our actions are often the solution to our problems.
