The Chariot offers a victorious combination of discipline, sticktoitiveness and resolve that carries us across the finish line. Sometimes that discipline means setting up boundaries around phone use or deleting apps. Other times, it means scheduling blocks of time to do Deep Work. Or Donkey Chariot can suggest that we turn a spotlight to care for our personal relationships which might mean leaving the phone at home or in the car when meeting with a friend or loved one, or tucked away in a phone bed when spending time with our children.
The “My Attention is Precious” spread asks us to take a good look at the attention leaks in our life. When we take an active role in harnessing our attention to consciously direct its use in our lives, the results are pretty spectacular!
