Relationships Are More Important Than Ambition | Emotional Intelligence | Scoop.it

Ambition drives people forward; relationships and community, by imposing limits, hold people back. Which is more important?

Both!

John Michel's curator insight, June 16, 2013 7:39 AM

In Canada and the United States, having frequent contact with neighbors was associated with higher levels of well-being, as was the feeling of truly belonging in a group. "If everyone in a community becomes more connected, the average level of subjective well-being would increase."

Touching post here by @jeff_haden.  As I read it, I felt like I did back in 911 when I simply had no doubt about the priorities in my life were.  I still do but this post is a wonderful reminder. 


If you knew you only had minutes left to live, which choices would you regret? Would you wish you had spent more time at work? Would you think about money you never earned, jobs you never landed, or companies you never started?


Would those be the kinds of decisions you would want back?


Of course not. You would think about the people you love, and how you wish you had chosen to spend more time with them. You would wish you had chosen to tell them how much they meant to you, over and over and over again.


Fortunately for us it's not too late.

John Michel's curator insight, May 21, 8:27 AM

As human beings evolved, our survival depended on being able to quickly identify and differentiate friend from foe, which meant making rapid judgments about the character and intentions of other people or tribes. Focusing on people rather than situations is faster and simpler, and focusing on a few attributes of people, rather than on their complicated entirety, is an additional temptation.
