This is what I wrote about in my post “What You Don’t Know About Digital Media: The Three Levels of Self-Awareness.” The idea is to be aware of all the parts of your life that are now in digital format. As we know, people are constantly sharing information, so a lot of people are sharing articles, photos, videos, and audio.
You can read more about this topic and a bunch of other related ones in my article What Is Digital Media?, but it seems that the three forms of self-awareness are similar enough that they are all called out in the article. Digital media includes things like blogs, podcasts, videos, and even audio files, which are pretty much all part of the same medium. The other two forms are reading and writing. Digital media also includes things like magazines, newspapers, and books.
Digital media includes the three forms of self-awareness, because they all involve reading, writing, and/or watching something that we have no control over. So we can’t control whether a magazine is a full-fledged newspaper, whether a video is a DVD, or whether a blog is a webpage. We can’t control whether a blog is a piece of media on its own, whether a video is a video file, or whether a photo is a picture.
We can control the content of any of these things in some way or other, but we can’t control it with any real power. All we really have control over is the content of that medium. The medium is what allows us to share our thoughts, images, and ideas with others. So it’s not all that surprising that self-awareness is also in the realm of digital media.
The fact is that most of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so that we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car. Even when we take control of our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, we can usually change them so we don’t have to change them every time.
The problem is when we’re not even aware of our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions. This is when we’re stuck in an endless state of not being able to stop. As a result, we can no longer control how we react to certain things. Like on the one hand, we can’t stop ourselves from drinking a lot of coffee. This is bad for our health.
But on the other hand, we are also not aware of our habit of drinking coffee (or any other habits or routines) and we can’t stop ourselves from drinking it. So we end up drinking a lot of it. Which is bad for the health.
There are two kinds of autopilot. One that is unconscious, automatic, and therefore not aware of its own habits and routines. And one that is conscious, aware, and able to stop. The first thing that you can do to ensure that your habits and routines are not causing your habits and routines to be automatic is to try to change your habit or routine. For example, by changing your morning routine from a full morning to a half morning.
This may sound like a contradiction, but the opposite of a habit is a routine. A routine is a well-defined pattern of behavior or actions that are repeated over and over again. A habit is a non-repetitive behavior or action that can be broken down into smaller steps or actions. When a person changes their routine, they change the habits, and thus the automatic behavior. For example, if you move from driving to cycling, you change your habits and thus your routine.
Our new habit is riding our bikes for most of the day. This is a great routine change because we get to ride the bike longer and have more “free” time on the road. It also makes us look more fit and fit people are more likely to want to ride with us.
