Each of us is capable of a little more.
Think of something you want to be better at – work, home, gym, sports. Then make a list of actions, short action points.
Then, write down how can you improve 1% on each one of those actions points.
It takes few time.
But it takes insight.
And you know what? 1% improvement a month = 12% improvement a year.
Just a little more…that’s the 1% rule.
In the decision making process, our emotions play a key role.
How big is a problem, when we are at our best? And when we are at our worst?
Although the term first appeared in a 1964 paper by Michael Beldoch, it gained popularity in the 1995 book by that title, written by Daniel Goleman.
But how to define Emotional Intelligence? It can be defined as the ability to monitor one’s own and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different emotions and label them appropriately and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior (source : Wikipedia).
Simply put, how do you let you emotions determine your future?
How do you deal with your emotions?
Do you know yourself deeply enough?
Can you overcome negativity, controlling your thoughts and emotions?
“Emotion can be the enemy, if you give into your emotion, you lose yourself. You must be at one with your emotions, because the body always follows the mind.”–Bruce Lee
I know it’s hard. But it has to be done.
Put your emotions in the right place, and make them work on your favour. That’s my definition of Emotional Intelligence.
