If you ask anyone who has ever worked with me, "what is Jason really good at doing". 9 out of 10 would say something similar to: "getting things done - he's highly productive". I don't know what the other one would say; I'm not interested.
I've done this by mastering the art of designing my environments so my intentions and goals can be realized without distraction. In addition, I have learned how to use productivity tools which give me a clear and measurable competitive advantage.
This has gotten me quite far in my professional and personal life. But now I want to go to another level; one that will move my noble goal forward and impact larger pictures.
My next study is Emotional Intelligence (EQ). I've studied EQ lightly for about 5 years having watched the TED talks and read the blogs on the subject. But to take it to the next level, I have recently hired a personal EQ coach. In just two months, I can already see a fundamental shift in the way I see and know myself, the world, my relationships, my work, and what impact I am capable of delivering.
People often ask me what Emotional Intelligence is and why bother with it. I have never been able to articulate such a massive concept succinctly. If I'm forced to describe what developing Emotional Intelligence does for a person, I would currently say, "It allows you to become you for the first time as an adult". Please watch this two minute video if you are curious what I mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoAFdxkyVR8
I can't see into the future, but my gut is telling me that I'm in for a very interesting and meaningful journey as I mix my study of productivity habits and ways of being with the pursuit of developing my Emotional Intelligence.
