Here at Scattered, we believe that you should not be afraid to be a self-aware adult. It’s okay to have a little shame, embarrassment or nervousness, but it’s not okay to be too self-involved or self-conscious. There is no shame or embarrassment in our work and we are proud to be a part of the growing community of self-aware people. We know you are going to want to be as self-aware as possible.
We are not afraid of you, Scattered, and we are proud to be your hometown finance. We know the struggles you face as an adult, and we are proud to help you do that.
It’s an interesting idea, but I think there is one flaw with it. Most people are not self-aware enough to realize that they are doing things for themselves, that they are not just “doing it”. Self-awareness is not about being self-aware of the effects, but being self-aware of how to deal with them.
I think this is what we would want to see more of in pop culture. We would like to see more people who really want to change themselves, who want to understand why they’re doing things the way that they are, who want to be self-aware of themselves, and who want to be the kind of parents that they can be proud of.
It’s amazing to see how much more self-aware we are as individuals and as a society when we are self-aware of how we are doing things. For example, we are so focused on getting our job done “right”, but we rarely stop and think about how we are actually doing our jobs, or how we are making a meaningful contribution to society.
Sure, I know it seems silly to say we should be more like the people at the DMV, but when we have that conversation with a fellow human, the reality is that you don’t want to brag about your accomplishments. I’ll admit, I’ve been known to brag about my children (they are my children, after all), and that’s fine.
The truth is, your job is to do your job. Sometimes you make an error, or someone makes a mistake. Thats okay, because your job is to fix the mistake and not dwell on the fact that you were wrong. Everyone has their own ways of contributing to their family and society. It’s important to realize when you make a mistake that you are accountable for it and you should never forget that.
You’re right, I should stop and think about that. Sure, that’s like saying you should stop thinking about your car’s problems and just fix it. But life is too short to worry about that stuff. It’s more important to keep focusing on what you can do now, and how you can do it. Once you realize that you’re not responsible for your mistakes, you can focus on the work you do to make your family a happy one.
It seems like there are a lot of really good jobs out there, and the only problem is, most of them don’t pay a living wage. To make sure youre making more money you should definitely avoid the ones that don’t pay a living wage but are just as good – the ones with the lowest-paying jobs.
I think this one is pretty obvious: If youre a successful business owner, you shouldnt be working for somebody else. A lot of people have this idea that they can work for other people all they want. But the key to not being an employer is to take a job that you can give your own employees. You’ll have that much more freedom and flexibility to give your employees your own tasks instead of having to give them tasks from someone else.
