Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Judgement – Inverted

Judgement - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t be blinded by rash judgements. Things aren’t as they appear to be, but they’re not what you think they are either. Your walls of skepticism are clouding your judgement and allowing your fear or anxiety to get the best of you. So before you toot your horn too loudly, make sure you have all the facts and have done a little investigation before you make a final decision.

Additional Insight:

Don’t claim more than you can prove or accomplish. Your reputation is respected and you’re being asked to do more than before. That’s great and brings new opportunities for success and recognition. But be careful what you take on. It’s ok to admit you’ve never done that, but you’re willing to give it a try. Others will respect you for admitting your lack of experience and your willingness to learn.

However, if you claim you’ve done something before and you’re “hired” for your experience in that matter, you better make sure you can deliver. Not doing so will harm your reputation not only for this position, but for many others to come. The word will get around and it will be hard to recover from.

If you’re the one making the offer, don’t assume the person you’re contacting can’t do the job simply because they don’t know the proper buzz words. If they’re willing to try and you like their gun-ho attitude and experience in other areas, consider giving them a chance. You may want to check in on them a little more often to see how they’re doing and to offer help. But don’t automatically assume they can’t do the task. They may  be the best worker you’ve ever partnered with.

The Art Of Communication – II

Expectations & Assumptions

Communication is one of those things that people often mess up with expectations and assumptions. We expect people to respond to our communications in a certain way and when they don’t many people don’t know what to do. Assumptions are equally as good at messing up communications as well. But the good thing is, they don’t have to with a few little changes in our thinking.

CommunicationI read an article recently by a journalist who shared a personal story relating to a miscommunication between her and her husband. Only I felt her conclusions to her story were missing a key point. She made assumptions that impacted her expectations and created the problem. Basically the short side of the story was this. The journalists husband was given the afternoon off because of a job well done on a recent project. He called his wife and told her about the nice reward. She decided to cancel her afternoon, pick their daughter up from school, ran by the grocery store and planned a nice special afternoon for the entire family. The time went by when her husband should have been home, but he had not arrived. Of course she tried to contact him on his cell phone, but there was no answer. Another hour went by and she was becoming angry. Two hours went by and her anger grew. Finally after 3 hours, in walks her husband all smiles and happy only to be met with her anger. She laid into him and in his defense he reciprocated the anger. In the argument he announced that his phone died and he didn’t have a way to charge it. Ok that explained the cell phone. His delay in coming home occurred because he took the opportunity to get a hair cut and stop by a store for shaving cream on his way home. Ok that explains where he was. Continue reading
