No mind-blowing revelations from psychologist Susan David - just values-driven, mindful self-management techniques presented via stories and case studies

Jul 07, 2017

I wanted to be WOW-ed by this book (I mean, I had a hold on this book since April so I had been waiting anxiously for quite a while!), but that was not the case. While I did take away a few things and felt empowered while reading, it wasn't truly life changing or ground breaking in its research. In my opinion, she cited the work and research of others far too often. I kept wanting to hear more from her, instead of anecdotes and stories. Overall, it was easy to read and understand so I will give David that.

Life’s beauty is inseparable from its fragility.

Life is full of diving boards and other precipices, but, as we’ve seen throughout this discussion of emotional agility, making the leap is not about ignoring, fixing, fighting, or controlling fear—or anything else you might be experiencing. Rather, it’s about accepting and noticing all your emotions and thoughts, viewing even the most powerful of them with compassion and curiosity, and then choosing courage over comfort in order to do whatever you’ve determined is most important to you. Courage, once again, is not the absence of fear. Courage is fear walking.

Compassion gives us the freedom to redefine ourselves as well as the all-important freedom to fail, which contains within it the freedom to take the risks that allow us to be truly creative.
