“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.” –Paul J. Meyer
When I first started reading Tarot, I felt I needed to understand the meaning of all the cards backwards, forwards and upside down, be able to rattle off the background and the history before I could feel confident as a reader.
That attitude almost stopped me from ever learning how to read Tarot.
Being a little heavy on the perfectionistic (read: Virgo) scale, I can get caught up in the quest for perfection. If you obsessively study the intricacies of the process ad infinitum before you deem yourself qualified, you never actually learn how to DO the process.
Honestly, achievement is most forthcoming with a combination of study and doing. This fits in nicely with yesterday’s concept of “Working Reality.” I consider all reality to be Working Reality!
The Three of Pentacles says to climb that ladder of achievement, you must have a plan, and then climb! A-B-C, 1-2-3, create an order of progression where one accomplishment leads to the next. Once you’ve got the basic structure, then start climbing, man.
That’s not to say things always GO according to your plans. But it doesn’t really matter much because in the planning, you’ve prepared for many scenarios. Adjust the particulars as you go.
Do you have a plan (and have you started using it)?
Note: This sucker didn’t publish on schedule and I didn’t noticed until just now pointed out. Feeling the Mercury action, man…
