“Keep The Batteries Charged” with Anne Grady

We give a lot of lip service to taking care of yourself. For example, if your battery on your phone was down to 10% what would you do? You would quickly charge it. But we don’t have a charging station for ourselves. If we are not healthy, if we’re not well mentally, physically and emotionally, we cannot be a source of support and strength for others and we can’t be effective.

“Boost Your EQ” with Anne Grady

Your EQ, or emotional quotient is very different from your IQ. It’s a way to measure your level emotional intelligence. Think about all of the characteristics of a phenomenal friend, leader, or confidant, then think about the traits of a horrible one. What you’ll probably realize is none of their characteristics has anything to do with the person’s intelligence, but rather their emotional intelligence. Your IQ is important because it’s the reason we get into school, finish school, get a job, etc.  But it’s your emotional intelligence that is more likely to dictate your success than any other factor. Your EQ is your ability to understand your strengths, weaknesses, triggers, and blind spots, and be able to empathize with others and understand their emotional state. More importantly, it’s the ability to use that information to guide the way you act and behave.

“Plug the Leaks” with Anne Grady

Author Anne Grady says you don’t lose time generally in huge chunks, we don’t look up and 2 hours have gone by. Instead, we look up and 15 minutes have elapsed, and if we are not careful, that time adds up. It’s like springing a leak, it’s not going to sink your boat all at once but eventually it gets pretty difficult to cover-up all the holes. It’s important to become very deliberate about the small chunks of your time you’re wasting, and how you can focus your time and attention.

“Forget the Idea of Balance” with Anne Grady

Author Anne Grady says the idea of “balance” is antiquated. It was first introduced in the 18th and 19th centuries when people were working 16 hours a day, six days a week. Hopefully, our life has changed (if you are working that much it’s time to rethink some things.) Our goal should not be to be balanced. Our goal should be to identify our priorities, spend time focusing on those priorities, and not to feel guilty about doing so.
