Awareness - Deepstash


Whenever someone asks me what my advice would be for 20yr old self, I have one answer. Make sure, decisions in your life are made from a point of awareness.

Merely knowing what you need to do is not enough for you to do it, awareness is the start of the decision not the end of it.

Step 1) Awareness,

Step 2) Execution, 

Step 3) Rinse and repeat.

What is the best mental model for taking tough decisions?

1)What’s the worst thing that can happen?

2)Close your eyes and vividly imagine it happening.

3)Ask yourself will I be okay? Mentally, socially, financially, and Physically, and if yes, then go for it.
