When you see a chance to get ahead today, you just have to take it! Save all of the deep and meaningful (and time consuming) contemplation for another time. You are in a phase of your life when you need proactive action, not passive reflection. Let yourself get comfortable with the idea that you can't hit a home run every single time that you step up to bat. Aiming for a perfect score every time isn't realistic, and you could be setting yourself up for disappointment.


You are perfectly happy to spend Monday and Tuesday cleaning out your car, cleaning up your office -- cleaning anything, really. You have headphones. You're in a good mood. And you love it when your life is tidy. New projects figure strongly the first half of the week, but don't put your money where your mouth is, not yet at least. Be careful about cash flow, especially on Wednesday and Thursday. Friday it may dawn on you that some of your goals are unrealistic, but you're the kind of person motivated by the impossible. The weekend finds you restless and daring.


Hard word really does pay off, for you, as the month (and the year) gets started. On the 1st and 2nd, look for phone calls congratulating you on a job well done, look for friends calling to say 'thank you' for the time you invested in them. Look for a super cutie to stroll on over, compliment you on your post-workout glow, and politely ask you for your telephone number. What a kickoff to the year! Yay! Sure, it's important to be critical, especially if you're, say, building a bridge and you aren't sure all the weight-bearing elements have been thoroughly vetted. But on the 5th and 6th, try not to be unnecessarily critical particularly in the context of relationships (which are constructed of softer stuff than bridges). Go over work issues with a fine-toothed comb on the 12th and 13th. By the wonderful 19th, 20th and 21st, you have some fabulous ideas and everyone you know wants to meet you halfway on them. What a feeling! Rushing isn't going to get the job done faster on the 25th. By the hugely experimental 30th and 31st, try something totally new!
