Metacognition is defined as "thinking about thinking" or "knowing about knowing." It is the process of knowing and understanding one's own thoughts, feelings, and memories.
When you are aware of your thoughts, feelings, and knowledge while they are happening, you can bring those thoughts under control.
Edward de Bono rightly states that “Only the human brain can deliberately change perceptions, change patterns, invent concepts and tolerate ambiguity.”
Learning about yourself is vital. You know what makes you happy or sad and what motivates you. Self-awareness is about understanding what is happening in your head and how to improve your ability to think about your thinking.
Like any skill, you can improve how you think to make better and more rational decisions.
The first step to improve your metacognition is to realise what you know you know and what you know you don't know. That knowledge can reveal what you need to improve. Then you can get educated on topics like mindfulness and self-awareness to improve.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
