Stay Flexible

Hi there!

I hope your week's been going well so far -- I've had a good one so far. I've been in Chicago this week (going back home tomorrow) and had to give a presentation to a client today that went really well. I haven't had to do presentations for quite a while, but this was a very receptive crowd and it all came back to me quickly.

Had a fine weekend, too. Did the Princess Diana gown exhibit, visited the boat show, and listened to Eileen Ivers at the symphony Saturday night. Ivers is an Irish fiddler (she was the main fiddler for Riverdance and also played on the "Titanic" soundtrack -- the movie, that is!) and really had the crowd jumping. Got me excited about picking up my violin again -- it's been quite a while. She took Pachelbel's Canon in D and turned it into a bluegrass/fiddle tune -- very creative!

Weather's nice here in Chicago -- not cold like last time I was here. I'll be back up in a few weeks; my younger son's going through boot camp at Great Lakes (just north of the city) and will be "graduating" near the end of the month. I'm really glad he's following through so well -- he's finally found something he's serious about! (whew ... It's about time, too!)

How about some quick words from my sponsors, then on to the reading.

We'll again pull two cards -- the first suggests something we should focus on for the week. The second suggests things we might consider in order to fully benefit from the attributes of the first card.

The cards are:

The Knight of Swords

The Nine of Swords (reversed)

First off, all Knights tend to be a little anxious -- they really want to make things happen. Sometimes they jump off before they're quite ready ... well, most of the time they jump off before they're quite ready, but that's just being a knight! Because they're so impatient, they do tend to run into unforseen snags.

The Knight of Swords tries to resolve these issues by reasoning them through. His first impression isn't to do what feels right, but instead to try and analyze things to determine the proper response. Some folks might see this as being inconsiderate; some may see it as taking too much time to solve the problem. In fact, the danger of this card is in being overly cautious -- in not being able to decide on a position because we're not sure if it's the absolute best position.

The next card seems to reinforce this -- this Nine often suggests worry and anxiety. I can easily see the Knight becoming stuck trying to determine the one and only absolutely best position, then things becoming worse as this Knight begins to overly worry about whether or not he's doing the right thing.

The good thing here is that the Nine is reversed -- so we should take this as a warning and try to avoid this stumbling block! Let's not become overly fixated -- to the point of stagnation -- on choosing the absolutely best position. Instead, we might be better off at choosing a good solution ... and then making that solution work by adjusting it as necessary to meet our goals.

I think it's rare that a person can plan a goal and have every single step occur just as planned. I think most plans should be a guideline -- and we then let our creativity adjust things as we learn more while trying to reach our goal. (In fact, since we learn as we progress, our "goal" probably should be progressing as well. People who don't vary from their plan often find that the goal they ultimately reach isn't the one they now desire!)

So ... stay flexible! Don't be turned off by having to make decisions -- make the best call you can, and then work to make that decision right. Don't worry if you have to change streams or tactics as you progress -- that's normal. Trust in your creativity -- you don't need all the answers right away ... especially since you probably won't know all the questions at first, either!

And that's about it this time! I hope things go well for you this week and look forward to talking to you again next week. As always, if you're interested in a private reading, please try my sponsors above or my list of readers at . I also welcome your comments at !

Look up Eileen Ivers on Amazon and you'll see her CD's. I know her version "Pachelbel's Canon" (Which she calls 'Pachelbel's Frolics') is on at least one of them.
