What Emotions are Controlling you?
If you have 20 minutes, there is a fasincating clip of Tony Robbins at the TED convention. Al Gore is in the front row, btw, during the speech, interesting in a non-political way.
Anyway, the core of his talk is on emotion-- how it determines how we communicate and act. And he challenges the audience (and viewer of the clip) to think about their dominant emotions. He asks the question, "What emotions are controlling you"
I'm still writing down both my postive and negative emotions right now. I suspect i'll be working on this for a while.

I always thought that Tony Robbins was just a rah rah motivation guy. That was really interesting. He said "I am the why guy" or something like that. Makes sense, I want to know why I do what I do.

perfectionism... ironic since you think I'd be type-A, organized, obsessive about all things... well diet is one thing I can't seem to gain control of. I have spurts of doing really well, but then I let it fall to pieces. It is this sense of perfectionism that makes me want to do such a good job that I procrastinate, because I fear the potential failure if not doing somthing "the best." I've notice I'm quick to judge, and assume that others are judging me. I have a very hard time making decisions as well...
WOW... I sound pretty screwed up! I guess I've never written this all down at the same time.

Wow, I really like the previous (3:04pm) comment about perfectionism. I'm that way too.

I read this post last week, and have been working on figuring out my dominant emotions, especially the negative ones. I have been figuring out some of the things that make me stressed or angry, and I have to say I am happier a week later. This is not something I have focused on before (I'm a guy). It's like, wow, emotions are something I can have some say in. totally new concept to me ;)
