Emotional Intelligence

We spend so much time

Focused on getting things right

Measuring how smart we are

Focusing on our competence

Relying on our intellect

That sometimes we forget

That it’s not the be all and end all

That sometimes the key to our success

Is simply how well we manage ourselves

Dealing with stress in the right way

Managing our impulses

Finding the right words to say

And knowing how to communicate them

Keeping optimistic when times are hard

Being flexible in changing times

Managing difficult situations with courage

Making decisions with consideration

Of what and who is around

Having a clear mind and focus

Being positive and firmly grounded

Keeping calm when under pressure is an art

A little emotional intelligence

Can take you pretty far
