Start to diagnose and find what the problem is. Once you know and acknowledge the problem, you also know the skill you need to master to be able to handle the problem.
You are at Stage Two: Conscious Incompetence. In this stage, you know what you don't know.
Stage Four: Unconscious Competence, is when you are skillfully, naturally, and easily able to handle the problem, without any mental effort. The skill that you have learned are now imbibed in you. In this stage, you don't know what you know.
This Learning Model can be used to break old habits and acquire new skills if implemented with focus and awareness.
Let's imagine this scenario: You've been feeling overwhelmed and stressed during the last few weekends and you don't know why. You are at stage # 1, Unconscious Incompetence (You don't know what you don't know).
After you skillfully say "No" about 50 times to 30 different people, you become a master of saying 'No'. It comes without mental effort on your part and it happens fast, naturally, easily, and graciously. You arrive at stage # 4, Unconscious Competence! (You don't know what you know). What a great place to be in!

"Our brains evolved to learn by doing things, not by hearing about them. This is one of the reasons that, for a lot of skills, it’s much better to spend about two thirds of your time testing yourself on it rather than absorbing it."
