The coming week will see many individuals scrambling to complete projects ahead of schedule, as the promise of greater rewards hangs before them like the proverbial carrot on a stick. Indeed, there is much to be gained by those who are willing to buckle down and complete their work ahead of schedule, but some may be envisioning far greater benefits and prizes than are actually available to them -- no matter how quickly they work or how early they complete assignments. Some may simply fall prey to the false notion that faster is better, and their imagined gains are likely to be just that -- imagined. Others will understand that potential rewards can indeed be increased, but that they may, in some cases, not be worth the increase in labor that would be needed. It's all a matter of balance -- as usual.
Many will find themselves gravitating toward certain others. This can, in itself, bring with it many important benefits, not the least of which is an increase in creative output. There are dangers associated with this kind of commingling, however, and one must be careful not to lose touch with one's unique sense of purpose.
