Friday, January 12, 2018 – Your recent hard work is an inspiration to others, especially if they are aware of the load you carry and how you stay strong in spite of the resistance you face. Nevertheless, you may be worried that reality will win this round as you compare your commitments to your schedule today. Douglas Adams sarcastically wrote, “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by." But it’s not time to throw in the towel, even if you might fall short of someone else’s expectations. Instead, demonstrate your determination by refusing to accept failure. Winners never quit.
Focus on saying what someone wants to hear and you will get your way through flattery and implied intimacy. Are your superficial powers enough?
