Clarifying your definitions of high achievement

Yellow shoes. Red tights.

I have a long blog post about my experiences at Artfest hanging over my head. I had planned to start writing up something today but when I finally got through my other projects for the day I just wasn’t into writing a blog post. I think it’s going to be a weekend project, along with uploading my photos to flickr. Maybe I will also tweak this blog theme because there are little things about it that are driving me batty….

Instead I give you my horoscope for this week from Free Will Astrology:

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): French President Sarkozy’s best friend, advertising mogul Jacques Seguela, has an unusual way of measuring success. If you don’t own a Rolex watch by the time you’re 50, he says, you’re a failure. I’m inclined to propose the opposite: If you *do* have a Rolex watch, no matter what age you are, you’re probably a failure. To be attached to such a conspicuous status symbol is a sign that your values are dominated by the transitory trivialities of materialism. Where do you stand on the matter, Leo? It’s a good time to think about it, because you’re in a phase when clarifying your definitions of high achievement is important.

  1. I have to say that in the world of Prestige Wristwatches, Rolex have done a lot of good things. If you take a Rolex of itself, it is a wonderful example of brilliant craftmanship certified to the highest standard. Personally, I would not choose to buy a Rolex, there are plenty of others I’d put first. As a measure of success I think it depends. If I was financially successful I WOULD indulge in expensive wristwatches – not from status, but because I think they are an amazingly interesting item. Those who judge others by a Rolex and not the Rolex itself probably say more about themselves than they do about Rolex.

  2. I totally agree with you on the craftmanship of a rolex. For me though, the most important line of the whole horoscope is about clarifying my own definitions of high achievement.
