I can’t even tell you how many times I have been on my feet when I should have been sitting down. It’s almost as if I have a tendency to be slightly more alert when I am going for a run or a walk. This is a good thing, I think. Self awareness is a skill that we need to work on to help us be happier, healthier, and more effective as human beings.
The reason that we have so much self-awareness is that we are all so much more focused on making more progress in our lives. This can be a huge misconception of what we mean when we say that we’re on autopilot, but that’s okay for now. As I said in the beginning of this book, it’s not your average question. The truth is that we have so much self-awareness that it’s just not worth trying to answer that.
The one thing that I wish we had to do is to make ourselves the kind of people we want to be, and make sure that we give ourselves a good reason not to. So far most people have been on autopilot for so long, and no matter how much we do, it has been their downfall. That’s all we can really hope for from a “reason” point of view.
The reason why is that we have a tendency to assume that if we do things right, we will be rewarded in some way. The difference is that we are often mistaken. And this is why I wrote about how having good reason is so important. In the case of self-awareness, we are often mistaken and we need to find the right reasons for doing things. If we don’t, it means that we are not good enough to deserve rewards.
In the case of self-awareness we need to understand that we are not always rewarded for doing the right things. It is possible that we get rewarded even if we do nothing. It is also possible that we are rewarded for doing the right thing, but not if we do it wrong. So we need to know what we are rewarded for, and how can we recognize when we are being rewarded for doing something right (or at least something that we think is right).
We are rewarded for doing things right. We are rewarded for being the best version of ourselves. And we are rewarded for being good at something. These rewards can be seen by people who have experience in these areas (like us). We don’t actually see the rewards, but we know they exist. And we know they are rewarding us to do something right.
The reward system doesn’t stop at just doing what you think you should be rewarded for. You can also see the reward system when you perform a task and you see others perform the same task and you see they are rewarded. When you perform the task you thought you were going to be rewarded for, you can get the feeling that you are doing the right thing.
The thing with rewards is that they aren’t just reward for doing something; they are rewards for doing something that is the right thing. You can see this by looking at a different task, like a task you thought you would do but you didn’t. Then you can look back at the reward you got and see that you didn’t just do it to get the reward because the reward didn’t exist in the first place.
The best way to find out if your reward is right is to try it out yourself. Look back at all the reward you got and see how much you like it. Then you can check back at what you did, and not just the reward, but the reward as well.
You may have heard that other companies give out rewards they think you should get. Thats how you know if youre doing it right. Check out your own rewards, youll see that youre doing something you think is right.
