MBL Minute: Fear Is The Monster And Knowledge


Episode Notes


Fear is the monster and often the primary motivator of change.  Fear is like gravity, it is everywhere all the time.  When a change moves us out of our comfort zone we often feel some type of discomfort. Usually this takes the form increased anxiety or fear.  Our brain’s amygdala has “hijacked” our conscious mind making it difficult for us to concentrate.


Acquiring and Applying Knowledge... first requires intellectual labor, the later emotional labor.  Both types of work are important.  The education we received focused primarily on the intellectual labor of acquiring knowledge.  This has left a huge gap in our development.  The emotional intelligence that comes from doing emotional labor is essential to enable us to navigate through the challenges we face.
