Why aren’t we more compassionate?Posted by On August 6, 2015

Over the past few months I have been doing  extensive research on Emotional Intelligence. I find the subject matter fascinating and rich with so many lessons which, if you follow them, will grow and develop you in many areas of your life.

The TED talk below, by emotional intelligence guru Daniel Goleman, points out how little attention we pay to each other. How in our busy lives we become so absorbed with our own stuff that we block others out, against our own natural instincts.

We allow irrelevant tasks, shiny gadgets and our own self-importance to get the better of us. It pays to be mindful of how we interact with each other.
