The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - PUZZLES - WHAT’S YOURS IS MINE By Ti­mothy E. Parker

Swear on it. Am­bi­tion may be your life, your whole life and noth­ing but your life, at least dur­ing the first half of the week. Your log­i­cal ap­proach to fi­nan­cial mat­ters can be help­ful to your han­dling of joint as­serts.

Your words may be more im­pact­ful on oth­ers than you re­al­ize. Just be sure that you tell the truth, the whole truth and noth­ing but the truth as this week un­folds. Some­one may be some­what sus­pi­cious of your mo­tives.

Mark your place. Fi­nal de­ci­sions should be put on hold un­til the end of the week. You will be bet­ter off if you sus­pend a cru­cial de­ci­sion un­til the tim­ing is bet­ter. If you de­cide that it is best to wait oth­ers will agree.

You pre­fer to be seen as a paragon of po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness. Be­cause you are too busy ex­am­in­ing other peo­ple’s faults, how­ever, you may over­look your own. Honor your obli­ga­tions and act re­spon­si­bly this week.

Start the week off by get­ting your clos­ets or­ga­nized or the re­ceipts filed away. You could be more con­cerned with thrift and econ­omy than shar­ing off your as­sets. Treat fam­ily mem­bers with re­spect in the week to come.

Pay at­ten­tion to what other peo­ple do, but do your own thing. In the week ahead you could have bet­ter things to do to fill up your time than to tag along. Be sure to an­swer emails and phone calls in a timely man­ner.

Your in­spir­ing ideas could bring peo­ple to­gether and break a stale­mate. Some­one close may be riv­eted on fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity and ma­te­rial suc­cess in the week ahead. Look the other way if peo­ple seem quar­rel­some.

Plan your work and work your plan. Take re­spon­si­bil­ity for your own ac­tions, since a busy sched­ule leaves lit­tle time to over­see oth­ers. Don’t be­gin any ma­jor new un­der­tak­ing un­til the end of the week.

You could be chal­lenged to dis­cuss some­thing that you pre­fer to keep un­der your hat. You must share in­for­ma­tion to pre­serve some­one’s trust in the week ahead, but may find that this cre­ates a se­ri­ous con­flict.

Con­trol your­self and avoid con­tro­ver­sies. In the week to come some­one might of­fer to take some re­spon­si­bil­i­ties off your hands. Don’t con­sider this to be an af­front to your abil­i­ties or doubts about your com­pe­tence.

You may feel the boss is look­ing over your shoul­der or that the rules are dif­fi­cult to com­ply with in the com­ing week. If you ex­ert some ef­fort your work will be seen in the best light and things will turn out fa­vor­ably.
