Self-esteem.


In the East the symbol of wisdom.

Provided that you have a reasonably accurate assessment of yourself the question is:

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

One Response to Self-esteem.

    Kruger and Dunning conclude: “the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning-Kruger_effect)

    This knowledge should make us humble. We should refrain ourselves from the extreme sides of (self)-evaluation, and always remain open for the positive criticism of customers, co-workers, project managers as well as from those who make us enjoy our work more, by doing all these incredible invisible jobs like emptying our dustbin and keeping everything tidy.

Well, what do you say?
