09/17/12: Prioritize, first! | Knight of Pentacles

20120916_183351 (387x620)

Okay, so I got a new deck. It’s not quite October, but I’m pulling out the Zombie Tarot anyway. Apologies to anyone who doesn’t dig the Zombies.

Here we’ve got an interesting spin on the Knight of Pentacles, aka the Knight of Hazards. He emphasizes this Knight’s Achilles’ heel—and one that I’m intimately familiar with: getting so caught up in the details, he misses the big picture!

That is kind of what it was like for me, setting up the Secret Garden. How many hours did I mess with getting the emoticons to work instead of making sure the basic forum worked? Getting the layout right (or better)? Blah blah blah. That’s both why I am good at tech work and why I’m sick of it. My Virgo genes have an eye for infinite detail.

Pay attention, YES. But not attention to every little thing. Prioritize, friends. Prioritize. Otherwise, your skill for noting the detail is still just procrastination in a fancy dress.

Do you need to prioritize?

  1. I definitely need to prioritize right now. I know exactly what needs to be Priority #1, but I am finding myself totally unable to tackle it. So all my other priorities, from #2 on, are getting plenty of attention! :evilgrin:

    Emoticons rule! They are the life of a forum! :cat: :plate: :mouse:

  2. How funny. I got this message last night, ironically, from the living dead. Prioritize. Yes. But moreover, zoom out. Zoooooom out.
    and, er..emoticons are important!
