“When it comes to learning there are four phases we go through. The first is Unconscious Incompetence which means you don’t know you don’t know. Before you ever saw someone ride a bike you were not conscious it was possible, and you were incompetent to do it.
Next we become aware. We become Consciously Incompetent. We know we can’t do it and we can’t do it. From here we eventually move into Conscious Competence. We are doing it, albeit imperfectly as neophytes. We talk our way, struggle, though it.
We spend the longest time in Conscious Competence talking our way through it, celebrating the changes or criticizing the frustrations. Most people aren’t very positive learners, having gone through our educational system public and private. We suck.
You Go Where Your Thoughts Take You – So Stay Positive
We suck at learning. We think we should be further along than we are. We want to be perfect right from the start. We pressure ourselves while learning which makes it more difficult. More than that, learning is not just knowing, but successfully doing things.
HOW we go through this phase determines, to a large extent, how soon we get to Unconscious Competence. Unconscious Competence means we make the new behaviors reliable habits that are automatic so we don’t have to think about doing it any longer.
We go through this sequence learning everything For example, learning to drive a car. You talk your way through it consciously. One day you find yourself driving while doing other things. You get lost in thought, converse, bop to music, and more, all the while driving.
The More You Do The More You Can Do – Skill Comes Of Doing
If you want to get to Unconscious Competence sooner get out of your own way. Realize the more fun, discovery, and celebrating of ‘wins’, and even the goofy moments, with joy and enthusiasm, and high vibe, allows you to learn much more quickly. You get it faster.
You learn, not only more quickly but easily, when your attitude is right. Accept there will be plateaus and setbacks on the learning curve and you learn it easier. The more you enjoy the process, the more readily you transform, all while living more fully as you do.
AFTER all, why suspend living your best life presently while you are learning how to do it? The more high vibe and joy you do everything the more your life qualitatively transforms from okay to marvelous. Plus, you become Unconsciously Competent in living your best life ever. It is a marvelous and unprecedented opportunity to live well and live large even while learning how to do it. So celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
