The picture "The Watcher. Metacognition" was inspired by the next two quotes. The first one is the Da Vinci’s phrase: “One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself”. And the second quote belongs to the American artist Jimmy Dean: “I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination”. These two quotes inspired the creation of this picture, the main idea of which is: “One of the most sophisticated skill of the mastery of oneself is a metacognitive skill to “think about thinking”. People usually are not really aware of their thoughts, allowing them to jump from one topic to another unknowingly. Therefore, I rephrased the Jimmy Dean’s quote: “We can't change the direction of the wind, but we can adjust sails of our thoughts to always reach our destination”. To direct our thoughts to enable us to reach our goals and dreams, we need always to keep our inner mental watcher on to control our mind monologue and to think what we are thinking about. In other words, we need to be metacognitive.
