Covered Under Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
Gary Wong, Consultant, Canada
I suggest that we expand our thinking about intelligence.
In Habit 7, Stephen Covey talks about 4 basic needs: physiological, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Sharpening the Saw involves ensuring all 4 needs are being met and are in balance. We strive to live, love, learn, and leave a legacy.
There is an intelligence and quotient associated with each need:
Live: physical intelligence, PQ
Love: emotional intelligence, EQ
Learn: intellectual intelligence, IQ
Leave a legacy: spiritual intelligence, SQ
Emotional intelligence is only one of 4 that we need.
