Happy Monday Everyone! This Monday brings us the diligent effort of 8 of Pentacles, a very apt "Monday" card if I ever saw one. 8/Pentacles is truly the card of honing your craft, paying attention to details, spending time alone to focus on a project, being in the all consuming place of flow.
Studies show that despite our claims of being efficient multitaskers, we are in fact terrible at multitasking and the endless beeps, chirps and dings are hammering away at our collective efforts to focus on any one particular task. 8 of Pentacles calls us turn it all off and truly focus on what we need to get done, create, make -- to give birth to something new for this world.
1. What do you need to work on today?
2. What needs your total focus and attention?
3. What have you been putting off that, once begun, will fill you with purpose?

Great job! The 8 of Pentacles, the card of the perfect work. I don;t think people are poor at multi-tasking. I think multi-tasking is a myth. I think the reality is that working with your actions one by one like cylinders in a car engine, one gets Cirque du Soleil level good at juggling keeping things in orbit... one thing in a hand at a time. It's just when you get in the groove or the zone and 10 things are up in the air and one in each hand... one on deck, one about to be relaunched into the 12-thing orbit... it only appears to be multi-tasking when in fact it is expressive of the seamless segues of professional juggling.
