We can become hawk-eyed when we know about our strength and weakness. We can be in the worst possible scenario and still be relaxed. How? By becoming self-aware and better prepared.
Here are few steps to help you out:
- Past is a great teacher
Recognize your past blind spots. Blind spots are those spots due to which your planning was hindered. In this way, you will come up with a list of weaknesses and strategically work upon them. Analyze what steps you took by creating your instruction guide. Also analyze the skills that other people have at picking up weaknesses and acting on them. In this way, your journey will prove to be beneficial.
- Present is your moment
Think of the important signals that you can rationalize away. In simple words, think logically about why and how a situation can be handled. Note your mistakes, criticisms and advice (by others and you about yourself) carefully. Why? These are the doorway to improvement. When you will start noticing and noting, your mind starts processing. You will stay alert and at the same time relaxed.
- Future is your vision
What future beholds cannot be fully imagined. But yes, we can imagine the future surprises that can hurt or help us. This applies when we are fully aware of our strength and weakness. We should question ourselves, “Is there any unthinkable scenario that might disrupt us?” This question will keep us conscious about our surroundings, the people we care about and ourselves.
Technology can create and/or destroy something. It depends on us constructively we can use it. In our case, we will use technology to develop our strength and weakness. It can be a great source for being hawk-eyed. Follow this three step process:
- Value exploration: Find out how technology can create value by identifying new opportunities for you.
- Value creation: Explore the quest about yourself. Are you creating value by promising to be what you ought to be? Can technology be helpful in your quest?
- Value addition: Have you acquired capabilities that you need? Is technology efficient in the process of solving your problem?
Remember: Past is an experience, present is an experiment and future is an expectation. Use you past to teach you that experiment in the present can give you an expected future. Get ready to relax!
