Enhancing the Intrapersonal EQ Dimension

More men than women have confessed to me that this is a weak area for them because they weren’t encouraged as children to be introspective and reflective.  Yet, one of the best ways to minimize making the same mistake in life is to reflect on lessons learned from past errors in judgment.  In my next few blogs, I’ll make some suggestions that are designed to help build your understanding of why you do the things you do.

My recommendation today is for you to start a journal and keep it up on a daily basis.  You may be thinking, “what do I write about?”  Write about what you did that day, your dreams for the future and what you did that day to move forward to achieving those dreams, and the people you interacted with and how they affected you.  People I know who keep a journal have shared with me that this is very cathartic because they can vent without actually saying something out loud that they’ll regret later.  Going over what you’ve written in the past can provide insights to how certain people, events and situations affect and influence your behaviors.
