Know what you don’t know: self-improvement starts with self-awareness

First things first

I’d like to bring these words to a knowledge/self-improvement point of view, that is, how we can extract some benefit from this mindset to improve the way we’re improving (pun not intended) on a daily basis. Putting it into an easier way to visualize, we ended up with this picture:

A Cartesian plane with the word knowledge on the X axis and the word awareness on the Y axis. On the top-right quadrant there are the words “known knowns”. On the top-left quadrant there are the words “known unknowns”. On the bottom-right quadrant there are the words “unknown knowns”. And on the bottom-left quadrant there are the words “unknown unknowns”.

Using the wind in our favor

Ok, we already know the meaning of each of the funny word junctions we just saw, but how we can use it in our favor?
