He who knows others is learned; he who knows himself is wise. – Lao-tzu
Knowledge is key, it’s often said. To be effective in our relationships with others it does make sense that we know self better, first…
What does it mean to know self? It can mean several things and at several levels:
- Know our hidden motives and agendas. Are we conscious of why we do what we do?
- Know what keeps us going; Know our deepest values; what’s most important to us. What makes us happy/sad?
- Know how others perceive us and how we impact their lives.
- Know our place in this universe.
It’s not a small undertaking; which is why we have an entire life to explore the universe that’s inside us and is us! Bon Voyage!
