Impulses are not always goal-oriented
It is important to note here that this behavior has clearly distracted him from his goal, that is from his success: winning the World Cup in the context of the last game of his career.
Maybe you are one of those people who say, "Right! Finally someone who does not like anything ", and maybe this attitude springs from the fact that you would like to do that yourself, but you always have to hold back.
The problem with control loss
As for myself as a sports psychologist, I myself have asked numerous professional sportsmen what their opinion is, and I can guarantee you one thing: I have not met an athlete who has understood this gesture.
There was not one who did not say, "He would have gotten into trouble in the cabin because we probably lost the game. He was no longer in control. "
A question of discipline
Highly resident people understand how to effectively control their first impulses, especially in print situations. This is not only important in situations of strong emotions, but also in our everyday life.
thats why impulse control also not to equate with emotion control, as one might suspect at this point. Impulse control can also be translated accordingly with the very well-known and little-liked word discipline.
Always keep an eye on the target
For highly resilient people are in an excellent position to work concentrated and careful on a task and not to be permanently distracted from other tasks, ideas or people.
They also consistently pursue their goals, bring things to an end, and in turn gain a positive feeling, such as contentment or pride, of having accomplished something.
Get things fixed - thanks to impulse control
Do you know this situation in which you want to close your e-mail program just before the end of the day and see that there are still three e-mails that you can not remember? Or that you are frustrated at the end of the day because you feel you have not achieved or completed anything?
This is precisely why impulse control is of paramount importance in our work environment. In particular, when we pursue tasks that are not so much fun to us, and these are part of a professional life, it is now extremely easy to follow their first impulse.
The possibilities to be distracted have never been so great
First read the mail, which just arrived, the phone rings, I go times fast turn, the colleague makes a coffee break and invites you to go, no longer look at facebook or at XING. The possibilities to be distracted have never been so great.
Yes, our world has become more networked and therefore more complex, and many researchers claim that it is exactly what makes us sick and leads to burn-out.
Burnout prevention through impulse control
I claim that it is not the complexity that makes us sick, but the way we treat it. Professor Fredmund Malik, one of the leading management thinkers of our time, presents the following provocative, but also very pertinent thesis in his book "Lead, Last, Life" on page 325: "Almost all of the often discussed side effects of intense work and professional pressure to perform such as stress, hustle and bustle, damage to health and many family quarrels can be, I claim, due to deficiencies in the way of working. You do not get sick so much with hard work. That makes you tired. You get sick of inefficient, meaningless and fruitless work. "
Be more aware of complexity
So in our modern lifeworld, we have to learn to deal with all the complexity more consciously and maybe even give up the grip on the BlackBerry or the iPhone in order to really complete a task.
Highly resilient people do not have to learn this anymore because they already have that ability in them and draw a great sense of satisfaction from it.
