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…
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
High Knowledge and High Confidence
to know and to do
It seems to me, awareness of and developing “stronger” knowledge
might come before manifesting greater confidence…
Understanding the progression in developing more knowledge,
“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
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
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….
the convergence of knowledge, confidence and action
“to know and to do”
Just look at what a torrent of thought that diagram set off!
