“Smart Action” …. developing stronger knowledge and stronger confidence…

I just read a post on the blog, Celebration of Now, by Tari Brand,
with that interesting diagram….I LOVE diagrams!
I think the information in that diagram has important applications!
applications that might be of benefit
to both oneself and others
~
So…..here I go…
more diagrams….
expanding on that one diagram,
hopefully leading to more insight about and understanding of…
the progression from low knowledge to high knowledge
from lower confidence to higher confidence,
and how to learn to operate more often
out of…
High Knowledge and High Confidence
“Smart Action”
to know and to do

It seems to me, awareness of and developing “stronger” knowledge
might come before manifesting greater confidence…

~

Understanding theĀ  progression in developing more knowledge,
starting with…
“unconscious incompetence”= not knowing that one doesn’t know
“conscious incompetence”= consciously aware that one doesn’t know
“conscious competence”= knowing, but needing to put effort into doing
“unconscious competence”= knowing at an automatic level, without effort

~

~

And then….
developing more self assurance in one’s knowledge leading to…
stronger confidence
~

~
As with knowledge,
“confidence” might progress through similar stages or levels
~

~

A few questions one might ask oneself….to enhance awareness of …
just how much one might know about a certain topic?
how important or significant is this topic to oneself or others?
might one have ideas to contribute?
might there be strategies for developing more knowledge?
might one’s own knowledge be helpful for others?

~

~

And then….perhaps, thinking more about one’s confidence levels
A few questions one might ask oneself…
hopefully leading to developing more confidence and self assurance
which has the potential to be of benefit
both to oneself and others

~

~

And so…
the potential for learning to recognize which “quadrant” one is operating in.
And even more important,
to develop those potentials for the positive convergence
of stronger knowledge and stronger confidence
leading to “smart action”
for the benefit of oneself and others

~

~

Thank you Tari, for your insightful post!
leading to more ideas about learning to make positive choices….
mastery…smart action..
the convergence of knowledge, confidence and action
“to know and to do”
~

Just look at what a torrent of thought that diagram set off!

:D

    Mastery does require both confidence and knowledge . . . otherwise, we march confidently off into the wrong direction . . . or hesitate to start at all. :D

  2. Yes, avoiding those 2 later options…ah, for confidence and knowledge.

I'd love to "hear" your ideas about this....
