Year of the Ox: Steady work on your dream
Welcome to a steady, slower pace ahead in 2021. It’s the Year of the Ox, and it’s a time to build and consolidate upon the past with a change of gear from last year.
Try the advice of Minnesota’s own Babe the Blue Ox: Take on challenges with a good plan and plenty of teammates…and don’t rush things. This is a year to work with purpose. Focus on your group and community.
According to Donna Stellhorn in her book, Chinese Astrology: 2021 Year of the Metal Ox, here are tips to guide you this year:
|Say yes to:||Say no to:|
|Planning before actions||A frantic pace|
|A change of gear, slowing it down||Rushing to the next thing|
|Working in teams, not alone||Irritability|
|Staying calm and going with a steady pace||Skipping steps needed to achieve a plan|
|Seeing what needs to be done and doing it||Going it alone|
|Focusing on the group: At work and home||Procrastination|
