I define ignorance as a lack of knowledge or comprehension of a situation. I know that I'm ignorant when I'm experiencing sustained feelings such as fearfulness, depression or hopelessness.
James was a manager at a large disk drive company when he lost his central vision in both eyes. He hated his job, and one day he started crying at work. He contemplated suicide.
There were many situations associated with his feelings: fear of public speaking at work, depression with an unhappy home life, hopelessness because nothing excited him. He wrote in his personal journal about what he felt until he uncovered the truth, which was that he liked technical work, not management.
My imperative to overcome ignorance is "Discover The Truth."
