Today's fortune: February 15, 2011

Today's fortune: Your friends will truly be helpful in your next month's endeavor.

Let's dissect this fortune working backwards.

"...Your next month's endeavor." That's interesting. Let's look at the Dictionary.com definition of endeavor: "To exert oneself to do or effect something; make an effort; strive." To my knowledge, the only "endeavors" I'll be taking part in over the next month is the constant effort to keep my dayjob and the even more difficult attempts to make my wife laugh at my jokes.

Then the first half of the fortune: "Your friends will truly be helpful." Hmmm. I don't think anyone can help make my jokes any funnier. But I think my friends can help me at work. Actually, they've been helping me a lot already.

We have an instant-messaging system at the office, and it comes in quite handy, especially for new hires. Instead of asking my supervisor a really dumb question, I can send a message to one of my classmates - all f whom have become my friends. They might not know the answer, but at least they won't think the question is stupid. My supervisor wouldn't think the question is stupid, either, but sometimes it's difficult to ask someone in authority a question you think you should know the answer to.

The peer-support network we've developed is terrific. We've all grown closer because of it, and we've all become better employees because of it.

But maybe this fortune isn't really talking about my friends. Maybe it's talking about my endeavors.

Is this fortune implying that I should begin a new endeavor (with the help of my friends) in the coming months?

Maybe.

I'm gonna need time to think about this. I'll let you know what I discover.

  1. Perhaps next month's endeavor is yet to be revealed. The fortune doesn't suggest that you necessarily already know about it. Only that your friends will truly be helpful in it. :)
