I am a total marisa murillo convert. Her new book is called The Three Levels of Self-Awareness. The book is an incredible read and is really well done.
There are literally over 100 other books available, so I was really looking forward to reading all of them.
That said, you could probably just read it as a whole book. At least that’s what I did. But I figured you should see the book as a whole because it is a really thorough explanation of self-awareness.
I really liked the first chapter. It was very clear, so not only did I understand what it was about, but I could see why it was important. I also appreciated the author mentioning that she was writing about herself because it helped me put myself in that place. I think that kind of helped me understand what I was talking about.
Although I am not a self-aware person myself and have never been told that I am, I can understand how self-awareness is an important part of understanding our lives. Self-awareness is how we know we don’t need to run but that we can sit and watch as we let our bodies and minds make decisions without our knowing it (i.e. I’m not a runner so I don’t need to run).
I love how she names herself “marisa murillo.” I am not as good at naming things as I am at describing them. It’s like when I’m driving and I see a light or a parking space, I can easily think of one name that would fit, but I really don’t know what it is.
There was a time when I used to give myself a hard time for even thinking about running, but now my head is a million miles away from my chest. I think that’s because when I’m not running I am watching marisa murillo, all day long, and that’s just not a good thing.
I think that I am a bit of a control freak. I have a tendency to forget that I need my brain sometimes. When I play a game that requires me to think, I get an immediate headache, and then I am lost for a few hours. The problem is that the game is usually a very fun thing and I never think about the time it takes to play every time I play. I find that a few hours a day spent on this game is actually more fun than I realized.
I have a tendency to overthink things. I find that this often leads to a lack of focus and therefore a lack of productivity on my part. I am very productive and have a very great sense of concentration. This is good, because most of the time I feel like I should be working, but I always end up being a zombie, and I have no energy to do anything.
I think over-thinking is one of the main reasons why your productivity seems to go out of control. When I’m done with something, I feel it get’s in my head for days. When I’m stressed, I usually can’t focus on anything for long periods of time. When I’m bored I tend to over-think. When I’m nervous, I tend to over-think. I like to keep my mind clear and focused.
