2 – Recognizing Patterns

What does “recognizing patterns” mean?

Understanding “if this happens…I do that.” In other words, how you respond to situations.

Neural pathways are created when you react the same way, time after time. These pathways can be re-written – but don’t get erased.

Here is a link to our episode, Enhancing Emotional Literacy.

“Pushing a person’s buttons” can be positive as well as negative.

The danger of patterns – they become an easy path – and can lead to negative reactions.

“Respond” and “React” – don’t both terms mean the same thing?

Jeff’s homework assignment – pay attention to the reactions you have, and did you get the outcome you wanted?

In each episode, Jeff and Eric will talk about what emotional intelligence, or understanding your emotions, can do for you in your daily and work life.For more information, contact Jeff at jeff@spiritofeq.com, or go to their website, Spirit of EQ.
