Uh oh …

I guess this’ll show me for completing some online tests…

You are The Devil

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession

The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.

Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really “Satan” at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild – or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

A while ago I posted an article on the misconception of multitasking. In it were a number of links to articles claiming that multitasking in humans wasn’t all that wonderful. I tend to think they are right. They spoke of “being more in the moment”, “tuning in”, “thoughtfulness”…. basically it all came down to mindfulness.

I put the question there to “take some time out. Think. Focus. Tune in. Be in the moment.” Of course, I failed to do it myself. It’s not easy, and your own brain hijacks you most of the time, jumping left and right. Conversations on the phone while typing? No problem! Unitl you miss half of the conversation and shoot off an email you can’t understand yourself anymore.

Thankfully, I keep running into articles reminding me to focus, like this one at Creating Passionate Users.
