Hope you had a good weekend and a good April Fool's start to the week! I always forget about April Fool's day and someone always gets me.
This was the last weekend this season for Sherwood Forest Faire -- I get weekends back again for a while!
BTW -- to Courtney in California: I met your friend this weekend at faire -- she says you really need to come down to visit next year and come to Sherwood. Come by and say hello when you do!
Let's see what cards we have to start the week ...
We'll start with The Hermit.
This is the wise-old hermit -- he knows things! His knowledge comes not only from training and learning skills, but also from experience. When you put book smarts and street smarts together -- you get wisdom. Knowing to do the right thing at the right time for the right reasons -- that kind of wisdom.
So -- where should we direct this wisdom. What kinds of questions should we be looking to answer?
Our second card suggests something to consider-- the Seven of Pentacles.
To me, the Seven of Pentacles is an accomplishment card -- especially a career or professional accomplishment. We took on a hard task and were successful -- hence the sense of accomplishment.
So -- maybe we might consider using our wisdom for a bit of internal career counseling -- a "self audit" if you will. There are always a number of things going on in our lives -- but maybe we'll spend just a little bit of time thinking about our professional choices.
How's the job? Going well? If so, then why? If not, then why not? What can you do to make it even better? Are you doing what you want to do? Why not?
Use the wisdom from your wise hermit -- if you have trouble applying this to yourself, then imagine you're giving career advice to someone else in your same position. What would you say to them?
It's good to "audit" phases of our lives from time to time -- otherwise, we're just going along for the ride and hoping the right things will happen. If we take a moment for a little review and evaluation, we'll likely discover things we can do to "guide" ourselves in order to better guarantee success.
And that's it for this week -- I'll be back later with more. Till then, have a great week!
