Overview

We all know a person who's incredibly mentally stable. Life can throw a hell of a lot of adversity at them, and they still won't lose perspective. Susan David found not just a name for this capacity, but also a way to deliberately form it: emotional agility. It's the ability to observe and adapt your emotions to what the situation requires.

David is a PhD, Harvard psychologist, and long-term researcher of what helps people achieve happiness and fulfillment. In 2016, she condensed years of research, coaching, speaking, and consulting experience into a book. She crafted a 4-step process that helps us let our emotions support our outcomes, not dictate them.

"The most effective way to transform your life, therefore, is not by quitting your job and moving to an ashram, but, to paraphrase Teddy Roosevelt, by doing what you can, with what you have, where you are."
