Sometimes you just know what you know. When we look at ourselves and our thoughts, we can actually see that we know what we care about. Our own “trouble” is what we care about.
If we have no control over our thoughts and feelings, we don’t care about what they have to say. Our own troubles are our own.
The problem is when we’re on autopilot for so long that we forget we’re on autopilot. Because when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us.
That’s true. Our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions can be the source of our troubles. We’re not self aware because we don’t have control. Our own problems are what we care about.
I think the reason for our troubles is the same as the reason they are on autopilot. We dont know who we know. And if we do know who we know, we know who has a habit of letting us know and that they have a habit of letting us know.
My wife has been a little concerned about her husband’s tendencies to let certain people know he knows. I’ve often told him that the best thing you can do is keep your mouth shut and let others do their jobs. So far, his response has been to let us know who he knows. And he’s not alone.
One of the reasons so many people lose their jobs to automation is that we are so used to our jobs being the “safe” one that it is easy to forget the fact that they are not safe at all. I have seen my company’s HR department tell their employees that they should always be prepared and keep a note in their pocket of who they know and who they don’t know. And I have seen my employees do this to me.
While you can work with this knowledge, it is not who you know. In fact, it is who you know that is important. People are more likely to lose their jobs if they are not the right person.
The idea of “who’s in your circle” is like that saying, “the guy with the gun is the boss, the guy with the badge is the customer.” Sure, you’re the boss and you’re in charge of your employees, but you can’t be in charge of everyone in your circle of your employees.
If you know who you know, you should be able to say, “Thanks, I know who you are.” The first person who calls you is the one in charge of your employees. This person is the one calling you. The second person is the one who calls you. They are just the guy in charge of your employees, and I don’t think they are the one who calls you. That is what we are all trying to avoid.
