Don’t make things more dif­fi­cult than they need to be. There’s no need to tire your­self out try­ing to swim when float­ing with the cur­rent will get you where you need to go. It won’t take much ef­fort to gain mo­men­tum this week.

You can get far­ther with honey than with vine­gar. A soft, ten­der ap­proach may be what it takes to get a loved one to open up about their trou­bles this week. Don’t let rust set in; find con­struc­tive ways to uti­lize free mo­ments.

Do unto oth­ers as you would have them do unto you. It may be pos­si­ble to take com­plete ad­van­tage of a sit­u­a­tion but oth­ers may not ap­pre­ci­ate it. In the week ahead find a so­lu­tion in which ev­ery­one in­volved ben­e­fits.

Co­op­er­a­tion is key. Find­ing some­one who shares your en­thu­si­asm and pas­sion for a project will make the task that much eas­ier. Mak­ing a mi­nor sac­ri­fice could cre­ate good­will and help ease a stale­mate this week.

Pace your­self. Take your time when tack­ling tough jobs as chip­ping away at the task a lit­tle bit at a time could pre­serve your stam­ina. Be­ing in too much of a hurry to get things done this week leaves the door open for silly mis­takes.

Tag along for the ride. Pay at­ten­tion when oth­ers of­fer ad­vice and fol­low their lead when they take you into new and un­ex­plored ter­ri­tory. Al­low some­one else to do the driv­ing and you may gain valu­able knowl­edge this week.

Rise to the oc­ca­sion. Ap­proach the tasks on your check­list with en­thu­si­asm and your slate will be wiped clean be­fore you know it. Don’t be ap­pre­hen­sive if a loved one tries some­thing dif­fer­ent to get your at­ten­tion this week.

Don’t let dog days get you down. Plan a pool­side bar­beque with friends or take in an air con­di­tioned movie to beat the sum­mer heat. Ask for ad­vice when faced with de­ci­sions re­gard­ing busi­ness and fi­nances this week.

Ac­cen­tu­ate the pos­i­tive. You’ll never progress if you fo­cus on the neg­a­tives of an is­sue. Put your en­ergy into what you know will work as the week un­folds. Keep in mind that oth­ers are mon­i­tor­ing your per­for­mance.

Don’t beat around the bush. Be­ing hes­i­tant or over think­ing could work against you, so just fol­low your gut in­stinct and go for it. Main­tain an open mind about a ro­mance this week and you could be pleas­antly sur­prised.
