The Gap

The bigger the gap between the addictive urge and the action,

the greater the degree of Emotional Intelligence

and therefore the greater success.

Having difficulty with impulsive …………………. ? (you name it!)

Here’s an idea from Paul Blackburn’s book “Resolving the Mindset Riddle”

Put a gap between the impulse and the action!  The greater the gap/time, the more powerful.

Take a breath and consider;

  • How?
  • When?
  • Do I really need this?
  • Is it true that I need this?
  • Should I?
  • Is it important?
  • What are the benefits?
  • What is the down side?

After applying the gap, make a choice of action for the highest good..

How many circumstances can you put the gap into your life?
