MBL Minute: Progress and I Robot


Episode Notes


Progress is rarely if ever easy.  When we take two steps forward the status quo often pressures us to take one step back.  The recognition and acceptance of emotional intelligence as an essential 21 Century skill is working its way through the following progression.  Each revolutionary idea always starts out on the fringe of society.  It is importance not obvious, proven or readily explained.  Gradually that fringe idea begins to resonate with those in need.  Initially it may appear risky but today more and more individuals and organizations are recognizing its importance.


Over the past 200 million years we have evolved to behave like organic robots most of the time.  Automaticity is the mind’s process of gradually enslaving us to the actions we choose to practice each day.  Our results are merely a reflection of the habits we have developed and strengthened over time.  What we practice we become and what we become determines who we attract into our lives and who we attract determines our results and the quality of our life.  This unconscious process has been fundamental to our survival.  We are performing actions without actually thinking about them approximately 95% of the time.
