Thankfully, the energy is not so much ruthless as it is persistent, and it's your perseverance against all odds that will bring the breakthrough that you've been looking for on Oct. 31.

Watch your back — because you're playing for keeps.

You'll be too preoccupied to obsess over details. When all is said and done, you will have gotten more done in these 48 hours than you have in weeks.
