Have you ever been driving a car behind someone going way below the speed limit and it drives you nuts? You’re experiencing what I call an “emotional moment”.

One of the hallmarks of your fantastic 4th Quarter is Emotional Health. When you are emotionally healthy, you are able to create more margin in your mind and being. Emotional health has a lot to do with, well, emotions. And that’s what we’re going to address in this episode.

My guest promotes being smarter about your emotions. We won’t just talk theory. Rather, we will bring actual examples into the conversation to help you better pinpoint areas in your own life where a little emotional smartness will go a long way in your journey.
