This month I received the following reader’s question, what is the number 1, most valuable skill everyone should master?
We learn a lot of things in school. From how to count, spell and speak. Undoubtedly all are useful skills but I feel emotional competence is an overlooked skill that we need to have more conversations about. It’s the most essential life skill and making yourself a priority is an investment that lasts a lifetime. I wish everyone has the awareness and the competence to make decisions that serve us well. Our emotional makeup is underneath everything we do and so determines the way we look at ourselves and others. It influences the way you feel and it ultimately influences your actions. So to live our best lives we do well by getting to know ourselves.
