Wow… A Blog!
Unconscious Incompetence: I don’t know what I don’t know. We’re incompetent but we don’t care… we don’t even know we’re incompetent because the activity means nothing to us. For me, I think rodeo bull rider.
Conscious Incompetence: Now I know what I don’t know. This stage can be a bit frightening or even overwhelming. We are aware of what we don’t know. We want to quit once we begin. For me, I think blogging.
Conscious Competence: I know what I know. This is the level of learning where we actually begin to achieve a level of mastery, at least over some of the aspects of the challenge. We may not be experts but we have expertise. Oh, this example is easy; parenting a teenager.
Unconscious Competence: I’m not aware and I know. This is the stage of mastery. This is the stage of flow. For me, driving and fundraising certainly apply here.
Today I am blogging somewhere in between Conscious Incompetence and Conscious Competence (leaning more toward Conscious Incompetence). I am no longer panicked and out of breath. In fact, I am kind of excited about blogging. And I lack the technical skills to make this easy and I will probably want to give up at times. Today I am doing what I quickly avoided weeks ago. It’s a dance between stages.
