Busy, busy, busy. How to find calm in the eye of the storm, one of the ABC's of Emotional Intelligence
Like most people, regardless of status of function, there are times when business demands can become quite overwhelming and the time to reflect and challenge what's going on around us is not available. Or so we think?
This week, in particular, has presented itself as quite the challenge, where work has been literally thrown at me from all parts of my work life, don't get me wrong, I love to be busy and challenged, but not so much that I loose sight of being able to think and reflect, on what it is I should really be focusing on.
Time to think and reflect are precious moments we all deserve to reserve for ourselves, whether we are in business for ourselves or working for others. It's a precious moment that allows us the permission to connect with our true value and pursuits. Don't get me wrong, I am certainly not perfect, but acutely aware of there are times when true reflections not possible.
Self awareness is one of the most important and key atributes of Emotional Intelligence that everyone can tap into. But it is also about being conscious, or living in a conscious way. It's about recognising your goals, and keeping them in sight, regardless of the goals and agendas of others who control the purse strings.
Would be interested in hearing peoples comments. Wishing you a good week and much success.
