The Power of Self-Awareness with Rami Jahedi

Episode Preview:

“The number one suggestion is that have common sense and common sense isn’t that common. And so a good rule of thumb is if what I’m doing right now, there’s a flashlight that shines on it, or I have to tell my mom or my dad or loved one, this is what I’m doing. And at any point, you feel like, Ah, I wouldn’t feel too comfortable telling them what I’m doing that you probably shouldn’t be doing it. So the biggest shift honestly, is kind of your offline behavior, with this fully transparent world with these digital stamps out there with privacy being dead. And so net-net as a whole, it’s actually good for society. Now the problem is, this is a rapid shift. So it happened overnight. So all of a sudden, we got to adjust our behaviors accordingly. And so but the number one rule is just if you don’t do something your mother would want you to do, to not kind of watch but you know, and then I have seen, you know, people they have posted it. And as you know, that it came back and haunt him 10 years later. And that happened, you see what happened to politicians to CEOs too, you know, ordinary people, but what kind of content or what we should not call the content post?

But what we have to watch out for as you said, you know, posting something that your mother doesn’t like, but is it social media right now? Isn’t that shiny object? Or is it that social media can be a great tool for our personal brand? That’s a great question. And so we have to remind ourselves, we can’t go back to start a new beginning, but we can start today to make a new ending. So again, we can’t go back to make a new beginning. But we can start today to make a new ending. It also understands that no one out there is perfect. So it’s about progress over that perfection. And also the example you gave is that we probably have something that wasn’t our best self. Like we don’t want to be judged by how we were 18 years old. 21 years old, our prefrontal cortex has been developed. And we made some, all of us made silly decisions what you want to do is you still want to develop that personal brand because if you have which we all do that instance out there, that just becomes part of your story. It’s not your entire story. And so that’s why you want to Kate take a little more control of the narrative being out there it dilutes everything else that might be negative. And so then that’s just a piece of that puzzle.”
