Make sure you express yourself in a situation-appropriate manner, even if you are justifiably upset about something. Time management and intelligent use of resources at work must be a priority. Check and recheck any paperwork, especially if it a document with legal implications like a contract or expense statement. Self-employed businesspersons in the media are in a positive phase. Look at how you market yourself and make needed changes, especially if you are looking at getting new clients onboard. Try and stick to a budget while travelling, especially if travelling abroad. A situation with elders in the family could turn stressful.
Letting go of the past needs to be a continuous process once you have learnt its lessons. Make it a point to stick to organisational protocol even in minor matters. Ensure that you have all facts and data in place before getting into meetings with clients. Self-employed businesspersons working with their family business need to maintain their focus and not allow emotions to get the better of them. A quarrel with family members involved in the business could turn into a serious problem if you allow the situation to get out of hand. Sticking to budgets while doing any redecorating or renovations may be slightly difficult, especially if you have hired an interior decorator. Do not allow yourself to get talked into spending more than you had originally budgeted for. Those going through a separation might want to get back together, but must work on issues with clarity.
Go with the flow instead of letting small problems get the better of you. Look at ways to learn on the job or attend relevant workshops as often as possible. Online seminars over the weekend would be a good option if you cannot take time out during the work week. Self-employed businesspersons planning a new project must ensure they have adequate finances in place. Look at a realistic budget and profit margins before starting. Take on a loan only if you must, and do not mortgage family property. Work on your equation with siblings and sort out any miscommunication as soon as possible. Try and look at the situation from her/his perspective instead of pushing your point of view. Singles dating someone new should not introduce the person to their family too prematurely, especially if they feel their family would not approve. Avoid drinking and driving.
Over-thinking and over-analysis could complicate an actually fairly simple situation. Any decision at work or concerning your career needs to be made only once you look at all the options available. Team work and solutions instead of complaints should be your focus, especially while interacting with your boss. Self-employed businesspersons might need to work with a client they do not really like too much. Do your best no matter what your personal feelings are, and let go of the client after you complete the project if you feel you cannot work with the person any more. Do not discuss personal matters with just anybody, and ensure you give any information on a need to know basis.
Routine work may be boring and repetitive, but you would be better off finishing it as soon as possible instead of dragging it till a deadline gives you no choice but to work on it. Budget constraints might slow a project down. Self-employed businesspersons working on a new project need to do much preplanning and understanding before the project is really viable. Try and look for an investor instead of putting your own money in. Listen to your partners’ point of view instead of pushing your opinion. A discussion could turn into a quarrel if you get too aggressive.
Think situations through instead of reacting from habit. Colleagues may be in a competitive mood and not very helpful. Try to handle work on your own as far as possible. Approach your boss with a problem only when she/he is in a good mood. Self-employed businesspersons need to be extremely clear with clients while discussing budgets and timelines. Minute the discussion if possible, so you have something concrete to refer back to in case of any problem later on. Focus on saving and investments rather than spending on needless entertainment. Surround yourself with supportive friends and make sure you sort out any disagreements before they turn into quarrels. A patient approach to any family issue would be the best way to handle the situation. Those going through a separation or divorce should avoid getting involved with anyone else on the rebound.
Consciously make right choices only after giving situations careful and honest thought. Finish pending projects at work before starting planning for future ones. Go on an online detox and stay away from Facebook, Twitter and all other social networking sites if you find yourself spending too much time on them.

Focus on doing your best so you have no regrets no matter what the outcome of a situation. Ensure that you know exactly what a project needs before starting on it.

Self-employed businesspersons might feel bored with routine work. Do not try a new approach to marketing unless you are quite sure of getting the kind of results you want. Any new investments need to be made only after careful analysis of the scheme. Do not allow yourself to get bullied into making investments. Think of planning a mini break if you can’t go on a long vacation for whatever reason.
Letting go of a situation that has no viable solution may be the only way to handle it, especially if you have done your best to try and resolve matters. Think before speaking your mind at work, especially if it will put you at a disadvantage in any way. Try to maintain a cordial equation with colleagues. Self-employed businesspersons need to manage time extremely efficiently, as multiple deadlines could pile up almost simultaneously. Family finances and budgets need to be handled carefully. Any home renovation or decoration might end up slightly more expensive than you had budgeted for.
Listen to your instincts and act quickly if you need to deal with an unusual situation. A flexible approach and willingness to learn on the job will get you much further than stubbornly sticking to old ways of handling projects. Pay extra attention to communication with colleagues to avoid misunderstandings. Self-employed businesspersons in a competitive business could face difficult moments. Give your clients your professional best at as competitive a cost as possible. Those looking to buy or rent a house need to keep a realistic budget in mind. Try not to take on more of a loan than you can comfortably handle.
A rigid thought process might prevent you from seeing the truth and making informed decisions. Slow-moving projects at work might need slightly different handling. Pay attention to advice from your boss or a senior, even if you don’t really like what the person has to say. Self-employed businesspersons need to keep themselves updated with what competitors are doing, and any new technology or industry standards that have changed. Any money owed to you would come in slowly. This is a positive time for property matters, both selling and buying. A conscious effort to maintain stability in relationships would be needed. Let unimportant matters go.
Handle any delays in communication in a calm manner and do not over-think the situation. Thorough preparation before a meeting with your boss would be essential and you would need to have multiple options in mind if you are working on any creative project. Colleagues may not be too helpful and you should ideally not depend on them. Self-employed businesspersons who may have been going through a financially difficult phase should soon be in a better situation. Handle any client who has proven difficult in the past with care, but do not allow yourself to get bullied.
