Hexagram 18: Dealing with Decay

This is the second part of a reading that began at Hexagram 26

And changes to hexagram 18, the Work on what has been spoiled: the truth is that we can do things the other way around, trying to spare some money on unnecessary things, and work twice as much than we do now, while trying to collect the money from our clients.

Sometimes, trying the easier way to do things is not the correct thing to do, since later we will regret it. So, the way to do it now is to stir up things a bit and strenghten our spirit and character - that's the way old sayings would counsel us to do, like hexagram 26 pointed out so clearly.
