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;
- 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?
