Picture the following dialogue in a tense relationship:

A: Look, if you were different, things wouldn´t have got this bad. Sorry, but this is your fault: you are so stubborn!

B: You are so right. Now that you say it, I can see that it really is my fault. I am going to work on it from now on. Thanks for telling me and helping me improve.

Does that sound familiar to you? Unlikely. In real life, statement A will not lead to statement B.


While there are still disputes among professionals about whether emotional intelligence is any kind of true intelligence, and whether it is a set of skills or traits, there seems to be more agreement about the positive benefits of emotional intelligence upon one´s life, in relation to mental wellbeing, performance, and leadership potential.

If you would like to cultivate your own emotional intelligence, here are a few ideas on how to do it in everyday situations.


What you can take from online analysis and forecasts

In our information-rich times, it is not difficult to come across different analyses and forecasts listing which professional skills are, or will be, wanted in the job market. This article suggests what someone like you can take from them, illustrating it with two particular examples of skills-demand analysis: one by LinkedIn and one by Institute for the Future.


The biggest pressures you can feel on your shoulders are likely to be those you have maintained there yourself: for example to be excellent in your job, to be a great father or a cool wife, to please other people, to live healthily, to stay calm no matter what your mother says, to get things done fast, to think positively, to be strong.


First of all, why do you want to change your procrastination* tendency? Putting your demanding tasks off and doing something else is more fun, isn´t it?

Apart from that, research has been suggesting that procrastination reduces with age. Wouldn´t this be enough to leave the topic for now and wait till you age enough to go and do your tasks?


If you want to do something about your procrastination now, then this article might be for you.
