- Ignorance. Here you aren't aware you don't have the knowledge, and you also don't have the knowledge. Ignorance is bliss!
- Discovery. You start on the task and become quickly aware that you don't have the knowledge.
- Pain. You start learning about the knowledge, but all you are aware of at this stage is just how much you don't know! Pain! (incidentally, this is where I am now and hence why I'm procrastinating *grin*)
- Victory! You have the knowledge and are no longer aware of the lack of it.
Aside: isn't know a stupid word?!
