  • This was a good lesson on emotional intelligence. This is important for anyone at any level to get better at because it’s so important to success in our work lives and personal lives. The 5 elements of emotional intelligence were listed as: self-awareness, self-regulation, social skills, empathy, and motivation. I think delayed gratification is a huge issue in today’s society with social media becoming so big. We’re all able to have everything at our fingertips instantly and a lot of people don’t react well when they have to wait or play the long game on something. It’s important for us to remember that while we can’t control our initial reaction (chemical reaction), we can manage our thoughts and emotions afterward to change how we handle a situation. Also while this is generally a learned behavior very early on in life, it is a skill we can all work on to improve ourselves and our ability to interact with the world around us.
