“I know what I don’t know”
Once you realize the areas in which you need to develop, you are getting to stage 2 – Conscious Incompetence. You still don’t have the skill that you need, but you are now aware of this fact and know which ability you need to master. This stage is the hardest for most people since no one likes to realize the degree of incompetence.
You may experience some negative emotions due to this, but also motivation to grow. If your resentment is higher than motivation, you will end up without any progress, deciding that the skill is not essential or learning isn’t worth it.
It is the motivation that you need to nurture and ride on its waves at the initial phase to kick-start the process as soon as it is possible.
