At the stroke of midnight on the Lunar New Year of 2017, the Fire Monkey makes way for the Fire Rooster. While it is a time for families to get together and children to light up the skies with fireworks, the New Year is also a time for constructive change especially for those in the workforce.

Here, renowned Feng Shui Consultant Joey Yap reveals how each animal sign will fare from a career perspective in The Year of the Fire Rooster in 2017.

Nurture Work Relationships

There would be minimal obstruction in your pursuit of greatness in career. You will dream big but it is important to focus on the job at hand and execute it in orderly fashion.

Hasty decisions with these wild ambitions will only tear down what you have built thus far. Remember to nurture relationships with colleagues and subordinates alike to make the process of carrying out your duties that much easier.

Manage Stress And Pressure

This year brings a barrage of tasks to your table and it is most probably caused by involuntary acceptance. You will be under a great deal of pressure and it will be important for you to take it all in good stride.

Failing to handle the stress can lead to compounding stress-related health problems. Learn to manage your time well so that you do not stretch yourself while handling these overwhelming tasks.

Build Task Boundaries

Due to the hectic nature of your job, you will be in a constant state of exhaustion throughout 2017. Your workload would have increased while the results may not seem to reflect the amount of effort that you have put in.

This domino effect will continue to influence the time you need for rest and recuperation, resulting in poor performance at work. Learn to build task boundaries and set aside ample time for rest.

Stay Focused And Committed

Office politics and gossip will come in the way of your success at work. It is important that you distance yourself from the problems of others and focus on personal career growth.

Failing to do so will result in strained relationships at the office and stagnant career progression. Simply commit to your job without getting distracted and you will find that a Noble Person will appear to guide and help you in your career.

You can avoid this by not blindly placing trust in others around you and scrutinising all ongoing tasks. If you do not do this, there may be a chance that your boss will lose faith in your ability.
