Today the King of Swords come up in my daily draw.

Generally this card represents a person who is forceful, decisive and blunt. Someone who is outwardly calm, makes good judgements and has a dry sense of humour. This person is a powerful leader/influencer where they make decisions that make a difference.

If this card represents me, or something that will influence my day, the card is advising me to take charge and take the initiative, but don’t rush. Do my homework, examine choices from all sides and then take decisive action.

Thoughts for the day

Monday is usually a quiet day at work where I can catch up on items I haven’t completed yet, or start getting ahead for the week coming. So I’m not yet sure how this card is going to influence me.

In terms of a person, I can think of one team mate that fits the description, and I am expecting a message from him today in regards to a new team mate that is completing the next cycle of his onboarding.

I do have to assess the person being onboarded for how they have gone over the last two weeks, so perhaps where I need to ‘examine from all sides and then take decisive action’. I have to make as assessment for how the person has gone and provide a grading.

I do have two hours of customer support work today; one hour of chat and a second hour of tickets. Perhaps I will come across a customer fitting the description, or I will need to assess the context of an interaction and make a decision.
