What's Going On - Part 6, The Mantra

When I was composing the Part 5, I felt dizzy with guilt. I've been cribbing about almost the same things from almost 2 years now - and that is a bad indication of how I've grown, or rather, not.

Having said that, it feels good to realize this part. I would pat myself for making the effort to talk myself out on these things. These days I'm getting inspired by things big and small - being a pathetic romantic at heart, which I can't help. For a change, let's talk positive.

Read on, for some of these daily horoscopes that're kicking me ahead - somehow, they make sense most of the days!

Although you can feel a sense of urgency, the smartest thing you can do now is to sit back and think about what you are about to do. You don't have to complete your planning today and you don't even need to set out on your journey. But, give it serious thought while you can and set intelligent goals that you can reach in the near future.

Although you may have a very concrete idea about how to get your work done, it may be smarter to spend more time now finalizing your plans than actually executing them. Your intuition is telling you to move beyond your normal routines and to try new things. But simultaneously, you can rely on your unwavering common sense. Melding your vision and your practicality can create an unbeatable combination.

There may be something very reassuring about what is occurring in your life now, even if there isn't much forward movement. You can tell that something is happening, but progress seems to be hidden from sight. Trust your inner voice; the fundamental changes you make today can bring results if you are patient.

The thing is Change is the only constant. I'm pushing myself to believe that Change is good, thought I don't have to do it hard. I've found my peace of mind in the midst of all the chaos around me - and the key is that I'm implementing this list below in a small, but significant way - and it makes me sing a song :)
  • Be patient: You don't have to do Everything, not Now, and not You.
  • Prioritize: First things first - decide and focus on the job at hand. Next things come next. Think, decide and do it.
  • Do 1 thing at a time, and do it well.
  • Do NOT postpone things, Do it NOW.
  • Don't be desparate. Sharpen your knife and wait for the kill.
  • Make a start, don't worry about how big it has to be or how small it was.
  • Keep your ego away, dont let it influence key decisions.
I guess I will keep adding more, and also move this post under my list of links - so I will open up to this Mantra every now and then, just in case I get distracted.

You may be quite uncertain about your place in the world, even if you recently thought everything in your career was rock solid. Now it can feel as if someone took away your compass and you cannot get your bearings. However, don't worry if you are lost, for this is not a long-term cycle. The uncertainty can open up new possibilities as you search for your new direction.
