I seem to be running into the idea of emotional intelligence whichever way I turn these days. That’s probably a good thing, because I’m sure that figuring out how to foster it in myself and my family members would do more than most things to improve our quality of life.
As luck would have it, I’ve got a little video to share from a talented young filmmaker I know. Though the main character is self-discipline, emotional intelligence might win best supporting actor. If only 7 1/2 minutes were enough time to make significant progress on either subject! As it is, 7 1/2 minutes may be enough time to convince you that both concepts are worth your attention.
At the very least, it should be enough time to remind yourself how glad you are not to be in high school anymore (unless you still are, in which case, this video should help). Congratulations, Ben, on a fine project!*
