Emotional intelligence

More important than IQ, Emotional intelligence allows us to identify and manage our own emotions and the emotions of others.

EI is generally said to include three skills: emotional awareness; the ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; and the ability to manage emotions, which includes regulating your own emotions and cheering up or calming down other people. Emotional Intelligence matters more than IQ

Just Say NO

Submitted by ub on Sun, 04/15/2018 - 16:06

NOPE is the finite word and, you should be prioritizing it. Saying yes is the fastest way to burn yourself out. Just Say NO

1. Use the word NO
Not, ‘Not at this time’, not ‘I don’t think so’, not ‘I’m not sure’, not ‘Maybe next time’. The word NO is a powerful thing. Use it if you are absolute, unequivocally sure that there is no other answer. And don't apologize for saying it. If need be, practice saying the word until it loses its power over you. Repeat it NO, No, no...etc.

2. Another alternative.

Has POTUS become the opposite of Robin Hood by completely revamping USA's social safety net? After cutting taxes for the rich, is he now targeting recipients of Medicaid, Food Stamps and Housing Assistance?

He is reportedly doing so through executive order, which has quietly flown under the radar that cuts the Departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Agriculture, as well as directs other federal agencies to cut benefits.

Does he appear to be fixing or breaking it? Show me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you really are.

"You"re Only As Good As The Company You Keep" "Show me your friends and I'll show you your future"

Our choice of a friend, amigo, or Péngyǒu is a reflection of we are because it becomes a 100% reflection of US.

The people we choose to be around shape our personality, the way we think, speak and perceive the world.

Mission Accomplished?

Remember the last time we heard the fateful phrase? This is what the USA gets from a stable genius? These words echoed another Republican bright star President George W. Bush, who spoke with sailors aboard a ship in May 2003 beneath a banner, also reading “Mission Accomplished!” Those remarks came just six weeks after the USA-led invasion of Iraq, though the war dragged out for years afterward. Some warn Trump is trying to changes the narrative from the #TrumpRussia investigation.

Does anyone wonder what they're trying to hide that would be so incriminating to all the parties involved? Is Michael Cohen getting ready to legally plead the 5th in the Stormy Daniels Civil case? Will this action mean Stormy Daniels will win, and that Cohen is rolling over in the likelihood of criminal proceedings?

Could this be a victory for Stormy and a huge loss for Trump and Cohen?

For the first time since the 1950's, when The Castro Brothers launched their Cuban Revolution, the communist island will no longer have a Castro leading it.

The Cuban Revolution was an armed revolt conducted by Fidel and Raul Castro's revolutionary 26th of July Movement and its allies against the authoritarian government of another Cuban dictator named Fulgencio Batista.

The new president is 57-year-old Miguel Diaz-Canel. He is the chosen leader of an unfulfilled generation finally coming to maturity after the Castro era.

A very temporary intermission of the wintery weather we've been having this Spring is finally affecting the Tulips, which are opening, fleecy clouds were racing through the night sky, and we're in luck for a couple of days.
