Where are we today, where do we want to get to, how are we going to get there? These are questions that should linger (at the back) on our minds daily.
We should gravitate towards greater rather than less self-awareness. This means being open to all sources of feedback.
We should also use theories and frameworks to test if what we understand about ourselves matches with reality.
An intriguing, thought-provoking quote on self-awareness:
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
