Walls and Bridges: Forecast for the Week of Sept. 26 – Oct.2

The first full week of fall sets the tone for the season: intense, productive, rewarding and, sometimes, even fun.

A lot clarifies and locks in this week. Hows and wheres and whos are coming into focus. Whys are beside the point, but they may crop up, too. You may even (no heart attacks, please) feel like you’re getting somewhere. Though that’s a vastly different place from where we’ve been, it does have its benefits, as we are increasingly seeing.

And we’re doing all this in a social context. People are combining and recombining in groups and clusters and all manner of one-on-one relationships. This week, that process has less to do with endings or redefining insights, for a change, and more to do with solidifying and commitment. Important, long-term alliances are the focus, some new, some renewed, and all growing out of a basis of mutual appreciation, benefit and support.

Don’t fool yourself. This isn’t going to be all sweetness and nice. The pace and the pressures remain intense-to-brutal. We’ve got work and discomfort ahead, to be sure. But there’s also progress and — what was the last word in that first paragraph again? Oh. Yes: Fun.

Lots more in my full forecast for the week as well as my weekly podcast.
