Our minds are strongly stimulated for a few days, but this can result in lots of misdirected nervous energy that makes us feel both high-strung and absent-minded. Focus is a very real challenge now, and our tendency to enhance stories to impress others may backfire. If we can stick to the facts, well be a lot safer.
Given the inclination toward exaggeration and self-righteousness, this could be easier said than done. We shouldnt get bent out of shape if someone challenges us, but instead view it as an opportunity to clarify our position. Were so distractible now that sleight of hand can keep our focus away from the real action. Watch for deception and dont give little details the slip. Theyre sure to come back to haunt you later. Words have power, but we may be over the top today, which makes others dubious. Avoid exaggeration and arrogance. Dont take offense if others are tactless.
