Two of Clubs
N = Negativity and Nonsense
Look for the lesson in each disappointment and don't waste your time dealing with distractions that will only frustrate you.
O = Obscurity and Obstinacy
Step out of the shadows and showcase what you are doing. There is a fine line between conviction and stubbornness. Check yourself periodically to make sure you are on the right side of that line.
T = Tantrum and Tension
Display maturity and wisdom when things don't go your way. Actively manage your stress so that it does not overwhelm you.
I = Inconsistency and Impatience
Find what works for you and stick to it. You will encounter issues along the way. Know that sometimes the best move is to be still.
C = Cynicism and Confusion
Don't be so quick to dismiss what is unfamiliar to you. You may be ignoring something that can help you. Do your homework to find out the facts and minimize the uncertainty.
E = Excuses and Enmity
People don't want to hear why you couldn't do something. When providing a valid reason for a delay or setback, focus on what you are doing now to deliver results. Don't hold grudges or burn bridges. It takes energy away from more productive activities.
