Nervous and always bold, I went to Kennesaw State University yesterday and had my first encounter with bridge and all of its glory. I know, it’s not an earth-shattering proclamation, but for me, it was almost like going back to college as a freshman: being eager, overconfident and learning to grasp a lot in a short amount of time.
As I thought about this, I realized that there are definitely some connections, whether it’s a business or personal, that are rocksolid and useful. In particular, in colorful terms:
- Jack of Clubs: be flexible; I don’t have to be 100% right or 100% correct all the time: realize that I have the ability of guile, cleverness and adaptability in my shield to guide me
- Queen of Hearts: be passionate; absorb my abilities of openness and tenderness in all that I do
- King of Diamonds: be scholarly; examine all of the nuance of my new vision with determination and purposefulness
- Ace of Spades: be fun; okay, I could have a more catchy noun, true, but the idea is still indisputable: I have to be gratifying or enjoyable or the game is over before I get started, right?
It is so simple, yet so true in my deck of cards. Being kind and honest is always the way in my book; it’s my highest trump. What about for you?
