By “Living Effectively”, I do NOT mean:

  • Always getting what you want or intend
  • Always looking effective and successful to others, even when you are

I DO mean:

  • The ability to manage yourself and your emotions rather than just be at the effect of your emotions

  • Getting and achieving more of what you want more frequently than you would otherwise expect
  • Remaining in effective action whether it seems likely that you will succeed or not
  • Sustaining useful effort no matter how angry, sad, discouraged, frightened, fed up, (pick your emotion of choice) you may become
