What are the elements in your life that you can change and those you can’t? What happens when you focus on the variables, the things you can change, rather than the constants, like the tragic loss of loved ones?
Chip Conley, the preeminent thought leader at the intersection of psychology and business, has developed a new lexicon for an emotionally intelligent age.
When Chip hit an emotional bottom a few years ago, he relied on a survival mantra to carry on living: “Despair = Suffering – Meaning.” This “emotional equation” saved his life and led to his newest book, EMOTIONAL EQUATIONS: Simple Truths for Creating Happiness + Success.
In this interview with Cindy and Linda, Chip reveals how to better understand your emotional life, your interaction with others, and the biggest secret of all: how to find solutions to the challenges of daily living in the twenty-first century.
After founding and leading Joie de Vivre for two-dozen years and expanding it into the second largest boutique hotel company in the United States, Conley has returned to his child-hood dream of writing. His best selling book, Peak: How Great Companies Get their Mojo from Maslow, has become required reading at business schools and in companies throughout the country.
Chip speaks around the world on finding meaning at work and is a regular blogger on The Huffington Post. You can learn and read more about his amazing work on his own blog at www.emotionalequations.com.
