To be unconsciously competent means to be able to do something with a high degree of skill without even thinking about it.
In other words, it means to be good without trying to. It means to easily master something. To get the results you want without it feeling like you even made a lot of effort.
We should strive to be unconsciously competent for all the most important things in our life. It’s what will create effortless success.
But how do we get there? How do we go from wanting to improve a skill to it becoming second nature?
Your answer might be “practice”. And you’re right. But there’s more to it than that. In fact, there are at least three more levels to it.
The four levels of competence have been used in pedagogy and psychology for many years. And I think it’s high time that everyone starts thinking in these terms.
It’s not just an interesting way to explain learning, but it’s a helpful tool to boos our results and progress too!

Did that make sense to you? Take a moment to think about a few skills you have that are at different levels. Can you see how this knowledge will help you move them up the ladder?
