Time management and task prioritization are challenging, so here’s my simplified system to achieve it.
Emotional Intelligence is the “special something” in each of us that is intangible but is palpable at the same time and that helps us become more effective when dealing with ourselves and others.
Emotional intelligence helps in avoiding passive aggressiveness and promoting emotional clarity. For example, anger is a healthy emotion. It indicates a discomfort we are feeling and guides us into setting healthy boundaries for ourselves, without destroying our relationships. So one of the goals of EQ is identifying what emotions we are feeling and fostering them in a conductive way, instead of blocking them until they bottle up to the point of exploding.
As we are wrapping up 2022 and expectantly awaiting 2023’s arrival, I wanted to share 9 amazing habits that can literally set you in the path of success.
There’s so much value in the lessons we learn when we transition from individual success to serving and leading others successfully. Messi is truly an unprecedented leader that has demonstrated consistently the value of embracing the strength of teamwork. He led Argentina to win this amazing achievement and did it through consistency and discipline. We can all learn from Messi, especially those of us that have a deep passion for the game!

Emotional regulation in a nutshell, is the self-awareness and effective management of our own emotions and how these project onto others.
When it comes to productivity and time management, procrastination can be the biggest culprit of ineffectiveness and inefficiency, but the roots lie deeper than just a wondering mind and its associated distractions. Procrastination is the hideaway place for deeper issues rooted in fear and insecurity.
Going all in doesn’t mean we must do or die, it means we must create a strategy that allows us to maximize our potential, identify the support we need, identify the skills we must develop, while ensuring our well-being is not an afterthought and therefore keeping us sane.
I have stopped using perfectionism as a crutch to justify my fear of criticism and my lack of self-confidence, and instead have combined my love for continuous improvement to put out great, imperfect work each day and keep working consistently into perfecting my craft.
