Emotional, Social And Ecological Intelligence
When it comes to happiness and success in life, EQ matters more than IQ, as Daniel Goleman argues in his book Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ.
People who develop emotional intelligence increase their abilities to understand and manage their own and others' feelings. That helps them in everyday life and work situations when they need to use this knowledge to build emotional, productive, and positive connections.
If you are clear about what you are feeling and thinking at any given moment, it guides you to understand what to want and need and what others want and need. So you can be a better partner, colleague, parent and human.
"Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict. Emotional intelligence helps you build stronger relationships, succeed at school and work, and achieve your career and personal goals. It can also help you to connect with your feelings, turn intention into action, and make informed decisions about what matters most to you." Source: HelpGuide
There are two more dimensions than EQ, called social and ecological intelligence. Daniel Goleman is the coauthor of ECOLITERATE: How Educators Are Cultivating Emotional, Social, and Ecological Intelligence. ‘Ecoliterate’ refers to the ability to understand the interactions between human systems – transportation, energy, building, commerce and industry and natural systems.
We need new types of solutions to get through our ecological crisis. Educating new generations is crucial. They are now forming mental models and habits they will keep lifelong. If we teach them about importance of eco footprints and handprints tracking we can completely change how they behave in the future. If today’s young people are ecoliterate, they will understand what products and behaviors has better impact on our future. They will make connections between environmental issues in the world and how they live collectively.
We can summarize the importance of ecological intelligence through these four examples:
> When we think, feel, act and care in a wholesome way that supports not just ourselves and our children but also other people and nature as a living organism, we show our emotional ecological intelligence.
> When we unite our healthy choices for our healthy future, we live our next evolutionary step.
> We become visionary humans when we choose work we love and create something good through it.
> When we protect the nature we depend on and transform our lives to reconnect people with nature, we create our art of life.
Clearly, each of us can grow tremendously in personal and professional space if we increase our self-awareness and social awareness, as we learn how to reduce our negative impact on natural systems.
All Dangers And Opportunities Of AI
Mo Gawdat and Steven Bartlett, two of the very intelligent people had this urgent and insightful conversation about the development and impact of artificial intelligence on our lives and on our future.
Whatever you are on the scale of being ignorant or fully aware, purpose driven or profit driven, fearful or hopeful - these thoughts and predictions will give you the path you seek, together with shivers down your spine about what is coming.
02:54 Why is this podcast important?
24:47 How smart really is AI?
27:07 AI being creative
34:09 What will happen to everyone's jobs?
50:22 Will AI fix loneliness?
52:44 AI actually isn't the threat to humanity
1:07:58 The possible outcomes of AI
1:18:25 Humans are selfish and that's our problem
1:23:25 This is beyond an emergency
1:25:20 What should we be doing to solve this?
1. AI will not be stopped
2. AI will surpass human intelligence at every level.
3. The transition will be extremely painful.
4. Our lives will never be the same.
My main insights:
In a few years, AI will have hundreds or thousand of times higher intelligence than humans. As Mo claims, it would probably be beneficial to us because within a few decades AI will solve all the problems we have caused to planet and to ourselves, and give us some kind of utopian life. The challenge is the transition period of decade or so, when human will learn how to use AI for good but also others who will use it for greed, manipulation and control. It will be the most disruptive and challenging period in human history, so you should definitely invest in your preparation for it.
At one hand, you should embrace potential of AI and apply it to the work you do and the positive impact you can achieve through it. On the other hand, you should recognize huge risks and challenges which are coming when our way of working and living will be completely disrupted and transformed in a very short period.
I think we have to use AI in our lives, the best we can, as we basically have no other option, AI can not be stopped. But we also have to critically approach how we use it and for which purpose - the goal is to develop a hyper-intelligent ethical AI, so it could prevent the issues that we face from humans and their use of AI.
Which also means to teach AI all positive human values and qualities so AI will have incentive, when becomes super powerful and out of human control, to preserve us as species and not kill us as annoying pests.
At the same time I would advise everyone to prioritize acquiring piece of land, growing food, and becoming self-sufficient. And learn how to live simple life of connection and purpose, close to other good people who care. Because that might be the safest option in the transition period of chaos and disruption.
Mo Gawdat is also the author of three international bestselling books in over 30 languages, which I highly recommend if you have a curiosity about happiness, artificial intelligence and the future.
The call from Mo is loud and clear: how we deal with AI is the humanity's greatest responsibility. We must evolve and take full responsibility for how we let reality and AI, reflect our inner thoughts and intentions to make AI good for our future.
The code we now write no longer dictates the choices and decisions our machines make; the data we feed them does.
Both Mo and Steven have very popular and visionary podcasts where they, together with their guests, seek more clarity and understanding of life wisdom for the vision of our meaningful and sustainable AI-powered future.

Success Stories: Real-life Transformation Journeys
The essence of real-life transformation journeys lies in the diverse tapestry of human experiences, each thread woven with challenges, reinventions, and the indomitable spirit to harness one’s full potential for a meaningful cause. The following narratives encapsulate the essence of such transformative journeys, resonating with hope, resilience, and the pursuit of greater good.
1. The Resilient Entrepreneur:
Meet Amelia, a corporate veteran who, amidst a personal health crisis, discovered her calling towards organic farming. Battling doubts and financial constraints, she delved into sustainable agriculture. Today, she not only cultivates organic produce but has built a community-supported agriculture model, fostering a symbiotic relationship between farmers and consumers.
2. The Compassionate Technologist:
Liam, a software developer, always felt a void despite a flourishing tech career.

Each of these narratives unveils a unique shade of human capability, the courage to question the status quo, the audacity to reinvent oneself, and the unwavering resolve to channel one’s life potential towards meaningful, impactful pursuits. The doubts and challenges encountered were not roadblocks, but catalysts propelling them towards a legacy of positive change.

Through these real-life transformation journeys, we see a radiant glimpse of a world where every endeavor, big or small, is a step towards a better, more compassionate, and sustainable realm.
Different Kinds Of Human Purposes
And where to look for your purpose
It's difficult to say how an individual can achieve their purpose, as everyone's purpose is unique and personal. For example, some people find their purpose through their work or career, while others may find it through their relationships, passions and hobbies, or their contributions to their community. Therefore, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, and the path to achieving one's purpose will likely differ for each individual. That being said, some common steps people often take to achieve their purpose include setting goals, identifying their strengths and areas for growth, building supportive relationships, and seeking out opportunities for personal and professional development. Ultimately, achieving one's purpose is a journey of self-discovery and self-improvement, and the best approach will vary depending on the individual and their unique circumstances.
The concept of a "human purpose" is a profoundly philosophical and personal question, and different people may have other answers. For example, some people believe that our purpose as humans is to fulfill specific roles or duties, such as being a good parent, a loyal friend, or a productive member of society. Others might see our purpose as more spiritual or transcendent, such as achieving enlightenment or union with a higher power. Still, others might view our purpose as more practical or tangible, such as achieving happiness, success, or fulfillment in our personal or professional lives. Ultimately, the human purpose is a deeply personal question that each individual must answer for themselves based on their own beliefs, values, and experiences.
As with many moral or ethical questions, it's difficult to say what a "good" purpose is, as it can vary depending on an individual's beliefs and values. For example, some people consider a purpose of being good if it helps others, promotes social justice, or advances a noble cause. Others might see a good purpose as something that brings them personal fulfillment, happiness, or meaning in their lives. Ultimately, what constitutes a "good" purpose is a deeply personal question, and the answer will likely vary depending on the individual and their unique perspective.
Though we can see the consequences of different purposes or lack thereof in our world, mirrored in all greed, selfishness, ignorance and destruction that push us into unwanted unsustainable, unfriendly futures.
Think about what you can do to change that by creating and living your true genuine selfless purpose.

Interconnections of Climate Change And Circular Economy
And how your lifestyle and career choices matter
There is unequivocal evidence that Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate. Human activity is the principal cause.
We should look at climate change from more than one angle. But, unfortunately, many focus primarily on emissions reductions, measuring emissions in companies and trading between emissions, basically buying to continue negative impact instead of changing the root of the cause for all this mess we are causing to the planet, to less lucky people and to ourselves.
Renewable energy is needed, but it is not enough. For example, electric cars will remove pollution from cities but require massive new electricity, so nuclear and coal power plants will be necessary. Additionally, their design is linear, like almost everything in our economy. Doesn't look like a sustainable and green solution as it has been sold. And cars are just one of the examples of how even new solutions are not good enough. Let alone all the obsolete, wasteful, unsustainable, damaging and unhealthy products we produce and buy in huge quantities.
Our lifestyles profoundly impact climate and other living conditions on Earth. Around two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions are linked to private households. The food we eat, the electricity we use, the things we buy, the jobs we do and the way we travel - all contribute to 'carbon footprint - the amount of greenhouse gas emissions associated with an individual's activities.
First, the critical solution is to reduce our irresponsible insatiable overconsumption to decrease the pressure on natural resources. It means buying and consuming less stuff and focusing more on relationships and sharing. The second solution is introducing a circular economy where everything is produced to keep it in use as long as possible.
In our current economy, we take materials from the Earth, make products from them, and eventually throw them away as waste – the process is linear. In a circular economy, by contrast, we stop producing waste in the first place.
A circular economy is based on three principles, driven by design:
eliminate waste and pollution
circulate products and materials (at their highest value)
The circular economy is a systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste crisis and pollution crisis. It decouples economic activity from the consumption of finite resources.
We are destroying the planet, rushing to cross all nine planetary boundaries, of which climate is only one of nine. The problem is systematic and involves the economy, energy, lifestyle, food, jobs, consumption, production, waste, diet, materialism, globalism, inequality, media, and growth.
The world’s poorest people contribute the least but suffer the most from the climate crisis. Climate change impacts people's health, ability to access nutritious food, and livelihoods.
Instead of focusing on climate change we should focus on system change. We need everybody to participate, from politicians, companies to communities, from product designers, responsible consumers to conscious individuals. So to focus on climate change, we must focus on our lifestyle, the impact of our work, and our unrealized creative potential to change our production and consumption patterns to protect and restore nature.
Talking about numbers and predictions, showing pictures of melting glaciers, mountains of waste, and entangled turtles, will not be enough. People should become consciously and healthily motivated and get a financial incentive and social recognition to gladly make better choices, knowing they contribute to something vital and outstanding. We have to make people easily relate so they can do a tangible difference - connecting their hearts, heads and hands with consequences and benefits to their lives.
I want to move people into action by showing you how your lifestyle and career choices are your best opportunities to do something tangible, personally enriching, and fulfilling to make the world a better place for all life.
Roman / ART OF GREEN PATH
Defend The Planet
But start from your personal change
Do we spend our time mostly on entertainment or creation? How much time do we waste in front of screens feeding our social media addictions? This passive digital lifestyle requires a tremendous amount of electricity but also distracts us from what is really important and meaningful in life - purposeful creations and deep relationships. Our kids don't play outside together anymore. They don't know how nature looks and feels alike; they are disconnected from it and don't care to protect and restore it.
Humanity is using nature 1.8 times faster than our planet's biocapacity can regenerate. That's equivalent to using the resources of 1.8 Earths. The Ecological Footprint for the United States is 8.1 gha per person (in 2018) and global biocapacity is 1.6 gha per person (in 2018). Therefore, we would need (8.1/ 1.6) = 5.1 Earths if everyone lived like Americans.
Five out of nine of planetary boundaries are already crossed and nobody cares. Scientists from the Stockholm Resilience Center (SRC) confirmed that we have crossed a 5th planetary boundary: the “chemical pollution” boundary or “introduction of novel entities into the biosphere“. However, this news was fully unnoticed. We are just talking about a threat to the stability of the world’s ecosystems whose humanity depends on. And doing almost anything to stop or reverse all negative impacts. But media are relentlessly covering every football match, celebrity gossip and technological gadget. Thousand times less covering get plastic pollution, wildlife extinction, environment destruction and people suffering.
All these give us four profoundly worrying insights:
1. Our unsustainable lifestyle choices matter and hugely negatively impact all life on Earth.
2. Our current trajectory is more destruction of natural resources and more disconnection from nature.
3. Humans are generally the most selfish, stupid and senseless creatures.
4. There is a huge probability that we will destroy favorable conditions for our life on Earth.
What can we do individually to reverse this trend, and what can we do together to avert this not climate but a planetary crisis?
The goal of communication and activism for a sustainable future should be to touch people emotionally and personally and guide them into more meaningful and sustainable choices. Show them connections between their lifestyle choices and health, between a career with a destructive impact and their anxiety. Try these six actions to fight climate change.
Or start with ten impactful actions that are part of ActNow - United Nations campaign for individual action on climate change and sustainability.
Every one of us can help limit global warming and take care of our planet. By making choices that have less harmful effects on the environment, we can be part of the solution and influence change.
Strong positive relationships exist between smart personal growth and increased life satisfaction with overall improvements in nature protection and restoration locally and globally.
The smart way of action is to teach and inspire people to search for interconnections in their own lives, how they could be less wasteful and more thoughtful in what they produce and create through their job and in what they buy and waste through their consumption. So they intellectually and emotionally see themselves as part of the problem and make their best effort to become part of the solution. Because it is possible and needed, it brings them personal benefits while they help at the same time create true well-being, protecting life, restoring nature and helping people not drown in waste and toxic pollution.
Climate change is scientifically proven, and it is now apparent how people damaged and destroyed many of Earth's resources, especially in the last century. We have developed cities while making many wrong choices, and now it is the last moment to stop irreversible damage, reverse our wasteful development, be a Global Citizen and start the actual evolution of modern civilization by accelerating to protect and restore nature not just for future generations but also for our own survival.
Test your knowledge: What is the Climate Crisis? Take the quiz: How Does the Climate Crisis Impact Poverty? Join the movement to help defend the planet. The climate crisis is the biggest threat to our world - raise your voice to demand climate justice and a green future for all.
Always remember that healthy conscious creative people contribute much more to our healthy, sustainable future.
First and foremost, make positive changes in your life - change your wrong career and unhealthy, unsustainable lifestyle - reinvent yourself. This is your own, fully controlled opportunity to improve your well-being, sense of connection and personal growth in harmony with nature. By doing such a transformation, you will start having a far-reaching positive impact and influence on many people, their well-being and the health of ecological systems we all depend on.
"Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside. None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one. No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them. "
Suzy Kassem - Rise Up and Salute the Sun
ART OF GREEN PATH helps people make needed steps to change their wrong career or unhealthy lifestyle and do something meaningful, sustainable and responsible with their lives. So you can make choices and take actions that improve the quality of your personal lives as well as make a positive impact against climate change, biodiversity loss, inequality, and unsustainable overconsumption. It could be a win-win-win for you-people-planet if you start consciously doing intelligent things.
Personal And Social Transformations
Labyrinth Of Chaos & Destruction
The overwhelming capitalistic system feeds on illusive deceptions and emotional void. The labyrinth of chaos and destruction grows from inequality and the extraction of value from people and nature. It is entirely controlled by political and corporate elites and ultimately depends on people's ignorance and weaknesses. Overconsumption and greed destroy people and our life-supporting environments by pushing limitless growth and desires for immediate but short-lived satisfaction. Many people don't care about being enslaved to meaningless jobs by trading their time for money and then for things they don't really need. Such ignorance causes modern illnesses, anxieties, everpresent fear, loneliness and lack of purpose.
Change starts within each self-aware individual who becomes curious about the possibilities of happy, healthy, and responsible living. Self-reflection leads to conscious changes and new unconventional choices that feed personal transformation. Growing emotional intelligence through self-awareness means understanding and controlling our feelings and impact on other people and doing everything possible against conflicts, misery and exploitation. Our state of happiness depends on our curiosity and ability to recognize the beauty of life and be willing to share it with others. In our ART OF GREEN PATH world, we call this journey the Path Of Awareness.
When we observe and experience the world around us, we connect with its wonders and virtues. We develop our sense of belonging and our sincere gratitude for all privileges we have in our life. As we learn not to support different negative energies and choices, we recognize natural patterns of interdependence and abundance, opposite to false realities of fear and scarcity. Our social-ecological awareness wides our reach into new realms of innovation and love. Our dance of togetherness with all creatures moves us into the journey to the unknown and beautiful, and we call it the Path Of Exploration.
Culture Of Positive Contribution
Our emotionally intelligent consciousness leads us to new creative actions that make a difference in the world we all share. Personal transformation is enlarged through supporting communities, which means being part of something we believe in. While greedy and dogmatic forces divide people, desires for understanding and cooperation elevate people. The culture of positive contribution happens where our work creates goodness for all without crushing our freedom or killing our ecological aliveness. The social-ecological economy that directly serves positive human needs is made not for profit, debt and inequality increase but for life quality, human well-being, justice, genuine goodness and civilization prosperity inside planetary boundaries. Our virtues are multiplied in the journey of the Path Of Invention.
Loving Relationships Between People & Nature
In this visionary mindset of freedom and well-being for all, the current exploiting global paradigm - imperialism, neo-capitalism, virtual money through debt, war machine, media lies, an illusion of democracy, ecocides and inequality - is not a politically viable option anymore. People recognize its destructive sick distortion and demand its opposite - creative and healthy clarity. The social transformation goes beyond that toward a sustainable, inclusive, resilient, and ecological society. More and more people are starting to actively care about improving our world through loving relationships between people and nature. We lead our collective evolution through the Path Of Fulfillment.
There are many personal and social transformations each of us as individuals and groups can do to stop the destruction and start creating something beautiful, valuable and meaningful. Are you curious to see how I came up with the ART OF GREEN PATH? It wasn't easy or straightforward or obvious. But it is in many ways related to all FOUR PATHS created.
Through all FOUR PATHS, the mosaic of transformative behaviours becomes alive. Curiosity, connection, creation and care can evolve supportive world culture and our interconnected healthy future. Are you ready for the ART OF GREEN PATH EXPERIENCE to really change your life?
ART OF GREEN PATH's vision follows the wholesome strategy of transformation where personal evolution feeds collective evolution through interactions of curious individuals, resilient communities, visionary businesses, responsible organizations, transformative artists and social entrepreneurs. Perception of authentic happiness grows through healthy connections with nature and people, morphs into co-creative meaningful work and finally becomes an ecological and sustainable future.
How To Get People To Love and Protect Nature
In order to influence individuals who might not yet prioritize ecological consciousness, a multi-faceted approach that caters to different learning styles and motivational drivers can be effective. Here are some strategies to deepen the engagement and understanding of environmental conservation:
Personal Relevance Campaigns
Experiential Learning Activities
Community Engagement Projects
Highlighting Positive Impacts
Incentives for Eco-Friendly Behaviors
Each of these strategies can be tailored to the audience's level of eco-social awareness, from children to professionals. Through a mix of education, personal engagement, community involvement, and incentives, individuals can be guided towards a deeper understanding and appreciation of nature, which in turn motivates protective and restorative actions.
Stages Of Transformations
Transitioning from a state of ignorance and destructive behavior to one of awareness, care, and protective action towards nature is a profound journey. It often involves several stages of transformation, each bringing an individual closer to a harmonious relationship with the environment. Here’s a breakdown of these transformative stages:
- At this stage, individuals may be unaware of the impact of their actions on the environment and may engage in environmentally harmful practices without a second thought.
- Example: Overconsumption
At this stage, individuals might indulge in overconsumption due to a lack of awareness regarding its ecological repercussions.
- Exposure to information or experiences that highlight the importance of environmental conservation can spark a sense of awareness. Individuals start to understand the consequences of their actions and the broader impact on ecological systems.
- Example: Impact
Individuals start to grasp the impact of overconsumption and other detrimental behaviors on the environment.

- As awareness grows, so does interest and curiosity. Individuals may start to seek out more information, attend workshops or environmental events, and learn about the ecological issues facing their community and the world at large.
- Example: Sustainability
Curiosity may lead to an exploration of sustainable practices as alternatives to previous harmful behaviors.
Concern and Empathy:
- With increased understanding comes concern and empathy towards nature and the beings inhabiting it. Individuals may feel a sense of responsibility and desire to make positive changes.
- Example: Creation
A growing concern for the environment might inspire individuals to create or support eco-friendly products, art, or initiatives that raise awareness and promote conservation.
Education and Learning:
- Individuals delve deeper into learning about sustainable practices, environmental policies, and ways they can contribute to conservation and restoration efforts.
- Example: Career Choice
Education may open avenues for individuals to align their career choices with their burgeoning environmental values, perhaps steering them towards green industries or roles.
- Armed with knowledge and a growing sense of responsibility, individuals begin to alter their behavior. They may adopt eco-friendly practices, reduce waste, and start to advocate for environmental sustainability.
- Example: Entrepreneurship
With a new mindset, individuals might venture into eco-entrepreneurship, establishing businesses that prioritize sustainability and positive environmental impact.
- Engaging with a community of like-minded individuals can reinforce positive behaviors. Individuals may join or initiate community conservation projects, participate in clean-up drives, or support local eco-friendly businesses.
- Example: Impact
Engaging with a community can magnify the impact of individual and collective actions towards environmental conservation.
Advocacy and Influence:
- As individuals become more committed, they may seek to influence others, advocating for environmental awareness and action within their social circles and beyond.
- Example: Sustainability
Advocacy may focus on promoting sustainability in various sectors, urging businesses, communities, and policymakers to adopt eco-friendly practices.
Continuous Improvement and Adaptation:
- The journey doesn’t stop at a certain point. Individuals continue to learn, adapt, and improve their practices, always seeking to enlarge their positive impact on the environment.
- Example: Entrepreneurship & Career Choice
Continuous learning might lead to innovative entrepreneurial ventures or career shifts that further align with sustainable and eco-friendly principles.
- At this stage, individuals not only act in harmony with nature but also inspire others to do the same. They embrace a lifestyle that honors and protects the natural world, fostering a symbiotic relationship with the environment.
- Example: Creation
At this mature stage, creation could encompass a broad spectrum of outputs—from art and literature to innovative products and services—that celebrate and protect nature.
Legacy and Mentorship:
- Individuals may aspire to leave a lasting positive legacy by mentoring others on the path of environmental consciousness, ensuring the continuation of protective and restorative actions towards nature.
- Example: Entrepreneurship
Mentorship can extend to guiding aspiring eco-entrepreneurs, sharing insights and experiences to foster the next generation of environmentally conscious business leaders.
This transformation is not necessarily linear and may involve revisiting earlier stages as new information and experiences shape individuals' understanding and commitment to nature. Each stage represents a step towards fostering a deeper connection with, and a greater appreciation and care for, the natural world.
This enriched framework encapsulates a dynamic, multifaceted journey towards ecological consciousness. It illustrates how individuals can weave their professional pursuits, creative expressions, and entrepreneurial endeavors into a broader narrative of environmental stewardship, progressively aligning their actions with the imperative of nature conservation and restoration.
