This is a great article from The Cut. It discusses the different types of self-awareness and how they affect us as individuals and collectively. You can read it here.
The article also mentions that the word “self” is a commonly misused word in the self-awareness movement. It is often used as a synonym for “myself” or “mimself” when you really mean to identify to another person. People often use this word to identify themselves to their loved ones, but it can also be used to identify the person who is doing the identifying.
You just had to read this one.
What’s the meaning of this? It’s a great read, but I don’t really have time for it.
Why are you reading this? Its because its an obvious misnomer. If you say, “The words we used to identify ourselves are as meaningless as the words we use to describe something.” You are not reading this.
Because I’m telling you, I’m saying I’m not a very qualified person. I’m not qualified to believe that I’m the only one who has a degree in software engineering. I am a licensed software engineer and my knowledge is pretty limited. If I want to know what I am going through, I have to look up to you. If you want to know what I’m going through, you can read the book CERTAINLY about the subject.
Even though I can’t be the only one who has a degree in software engineering, I can teach you how to do it. So if you want to know what Im going through, you can study the book CERTAINLY about the subject.
I think the book covers most of the things that anyone in the industry is going through today. It is only that the book is not written for the industry. The book is written for individuals who are ready to do something about it.
