So, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce to you the OLQ which has not been listed in predefined OLQs that has been circulated all over the world.

The OLQ which I want to discuss about is Situational Awareness. I think this attribute plays a vital role in grooming ourselves. It is the ability to observe, determine, process and comprehend the critical elements of any information or incident which is going on around you.

In simple words, it is the way you behave, respond and act to particular situation and adversities depending upon the information you have. Everyone are distinct in their thought process so as their stimulus.

Situational Awareness is dynamic, hard to maintain and easy to lose. Knowing what is going on all the time is very difficult for any person especially during stress. Therefore it is crucial that we know what behavior is effective in keeping us situationally aware. For example, when you are with your parents you better know their likes and dislikes, their priorities and what they expect from you

If you had ever witness SSB, you can easily figure out the essence of Situational Awareness at every moment.
