The cost of being superficial

The cost of being superficial

The superficial culture of ‘seen it, read it, know it ’, runs the real risk of turning us into a human collective of jack of all trades, masters of nothing.

Being superficial does not allow you and your team to use your real intrapersonal potential.


There exists a universal skill, that each of us already possesses. This skill is the only "thing" that enables us to take notice and to dig deep into something. When reading is a general skill that enables us to learn other skills, then this is a meta-skill, that enables us to acquire all other skills (including reading).

Do you know what it is?

Have you discovered it?

WHAT? Every time when we notice something or want to dig deep, we use a special quality that is different from the thinking mind – awareness.

WHY? The use of awareness is essential if we aim to find adequate and workable solutions to our unique challenges present in our time-starved lives, not only temporary quick fixes that are compensative in nature.


BUT... Articles and YouTube videos, with titles like, ‘5 tips to a well-motivated team ’ and ‘how to change your whole life around in 5 easy steps’ are superficial. They are shallow and often leave the impression that there is a magic pill to achieving what you want, without actual effort or practice. They tell you what you want to achieve, but not how.

If no actual change ensues, then it’s the false impression (of knowing how to reach the goal) that you have been left with, while how to exactly reach your goal remains vague and impractical.

AHA! During moments when you left superficiality behind and did take the moment to dig deeper, you used awareness (even if you didn't differentiate it from thinking at that time). Every time you received a truly game-changing and deeply transformative insight, its source was again awareness.

Insights come only when you are using awareness – being superficial restricts your access to it, limits your potential. To empower you to make use of this tool more often, more deliberately, and consciously – that’s why education about intrapersonal skills has been developed and is now brought to you.



What would you drop immediately, out of all the things you are already doing, if you were not blind to the results of your actions? How would it change your focus?




Awareness is your practical ability to notice what is going on. Awareness enables people to take responsibility for choices and actions, have access to creativity, intuition, and initiative.

What would happen if you learned to use awareness deliberately?

What would happen if people would be more aware of what they do?

Take a moment and reflect on it!

It is up to you to gain this universal knowledge. Knowing how to be aware and directing your awareness at will, will never lose value.

Your awareness will help you to notice how to make use of all other knowledge and professional skills. And it is up to you to enable your team to learn the real benefits of awareness and awareness-based intrapersonal skills.

"For me, awareness helps to understand what is going on and to notice things around me, that I did not notice before."
