Hey folks 👋 this week, we’re going to explore how recognising our emotions and learning to process them plays a much bigger part in our ability to do our best work than we might currently believe.
Emotions, right? Frustrating, anger, happiness, elation – they’re one hell of a ride. And they connect to everything we do.
I’ve always winced at, what I deem as stupid advice, the notion to separate your emotions from personal and professional worlds or to leave emotions and feelings at the door.
I class it as stupid because we are emotional creatures. We think and feel through our emotions. They can propel us to do our best work or pound us into submission. To suggest leaving emotions out of work is effectively telling someone to stop breathing.
