Where cool comes from

“The original sense of the hipster term ‘cool’ referred to the capacity of African American jazz musicians who could control their rage at the racism of the times, even as they channeled that anger into an extraordinary expression of deep feeling. Effective leadership demands the same sort of capacity for managing one’s own turbulent feelings while allowing the full expression of positive emotions.”
– Primal Leadership, Daniel Goleman
