Before you get involved in any new project, competition or relationship today, you need to put things on pause — take another long look at the last project, competition or relationship you were involved in. There are some loose ends that still need to be tied up in a neat little bow. Make sure you finish it up completely before starting on something new. You know that you’ve got to close that door before you will be totally ready to open up another one.
You might have to perform a tricky negotiation with someone who rubs you the wrong way today, but you’ll do well with it — and your confidence will send a very powerful signal to some very powerful people! Being more compromising will put you in a much more powerful position than you’d ever be in if you pushed and pushed to get your own way. You’re starting to understand how to get more of what you want out of life by giving up something to other people every once in a while.
“You begin saving the world by saving one person at a time; all else is grandiose romanticism or politics.”
– Charles Bukowski (1920-94), german-born American writer, author
