He shared an incident as   “Today morning I called an honorable member of our club ; the VPE  TM Senthil Kumar and told him  “TM Senthil.. pls forgive me.  I have some inconvenience.  I cannot be the TME tonight.  I am sorry for that” TM Senthil replied me without any pause of delay.  TM Shajahan !  Take it easy.  Don’t be sorry for small things.  I will take care of.  If you need any help from me never hesitate to tell me’ I was surprised by this cool response. After sometime again I called TM Senthil and told him “Forgive me TM Senthil….. He interrupted me and said “look TM Shajahan .  don’t be so sensitive.  The issue is over.  Don’t feel bad for that anymore.  “No TM  Senthil.  I want to say something else… and I explained I was trying to ‘April Fool’ him.  But TM Senthil was very cool all along, despite he had to present two advanced projects today, besides other responsibility of a VPE .  He was even ready to accept the role of a TME, if nobody else was there. 

Now, tell me how many of us could be so cool on such occasions? You call it as EQ or  EI or EM – EMOTIONAL QUOTIENT, OR EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENT  OR EMOTIONAL MATURITY – it was simply super.  We love to possess such a trait    We are just back after our Division conference.  Our club was very much active.  Our presence was there at all levels – Club, Area & even the Division Levels.  All our club participants practiced very well. 

But when the question comes “was there anything else we could have done to be even better or the best? Goal says. .. Goal is the founder of Emotional Intelligence.  We will see what .. Goal has to say.

Thought of the evening presented by TM Seema she restated what Robert H Schuller once said “Never cut a tree down in the winter time. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make important decisions when you are in worst moods. Wait be patient. The storm will pass, the spring will come.
