Last night Vancouver's Data Driven Wellness meetup met on the topic of Emotional Intelligence.
These are my notes, mostly books and URLs that were mentioned that I thought we would want for reference:
Kris' best book read in 2016 on the issue: Attached
Tyler’s best 3 books of 2016:
Emotional Intelligence 2.0
Caroline Web - How to have a Good Day
5 love languages
Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Quality Time & Receiving Gifts
Start a spreadsheet and measure quickly each day: Family, Friends, Fitness, Sleep, Finance, Mood, Gratitude etc.
HRV - Heart Rate Variability
sit with triggers, realize you’re OK and comfortable with it
The minimalists podcast (and documentary) - does it add value to me
it’s amazing how much you have that doesn’t add any value to your life
Jim Rohn - You’re the product of the 5 people you hang out with the most
perception of truth
ask for feedback to see if you’re emotional intelligent!
I grew up thinking everything is black or white - when it turns out to be mostly grey
giving makes you happier; selfish vs selfless
What areas are you selfless - relationships, work, social
gratitude - fake it until you make it, you become really attractive
abundance - scarcity mindset - time, money, partners, business
Ideas for next meetup:
John: Fitness. Healthy Eating. Track your body/wellness. Genetics.
Ivan: What to do with Quantified Self data
Leo: Social Awareness - How other’s emotions affects us - Find a way to channel it more positively
Tyler: Quantified Self. Ways of applying the things we’re talking about - perhaps accountability partner system.
Jennifer: The more tech we have, the less connected we become as human beings. No one wants to talk to the other.
