If you are like me, sometimes you get a little overwhelmed when it comes to making a decision. So I started a series of posts called “The Three Levels of Self-Awareness.
The first level is the most basic and is usually called the “blind spot,” or our ability to see what we’re currently doing. Because of this, we tend to make mistakes that we don’t even realize we’re making.
If you’re like me, a little blind spot is always going to be there.
The second level is the “second self”. This is the area where we decide how to perceive ourselves and our own actions.
This is where I usually make big mistakes, and this is where the people who care about me most tend to trip me up. I fall into this second self-awareness area too often and then my thoughts begin to become a bit random and unfocused. I begin to think that I have a perfect plan for everything, when I was only thinking about my life in the first self-awareness.
This is the place where I can be most honest with myself and with the people around me, because there is no “right” way to do things. It’s a place where I can actually admit my failures. This is where I can be more humble and ask for help, because I don’t always know how to do things. I find this second self is where I learn how to manage my life better, and that is where I most often get frustrated and lose my cool.
This second self is where I learn how to manage my life better, and that is where I most often get frustrated and lose my cool. I don’t know if it’s ever been this much fun.
For those of you who don’t know, Marketing InternDC is a marketing internship that is held in the heart of Washington D.C. This year’s event is being held at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill, and the application deadline is this Friday, April 12th. The event is sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, and it’s for students who are interested in marketing, advertising, and communications.
Its been my experience that the more fun it is, the less work there is. The only times I’ve had the same experience is when I’ve been volunteering for the local school district or when I’m working on the local chapter of a sports organization. Its certainly the most fun I’ve had in the last year or so.
