drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Spike Milligan often feels that if he wants something done right he must do it himself, for others do not do as thorough a job as he does. Doing a task well is very important to him, and he may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Spike Milligan strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Spike Milligan can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that he will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that his efforts will simply not be good enough. He is usually modest and realistic in assessing what he can accomplish and, if anything, Spike Milligan underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Milligan does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Spike Milligan conserves his energy and paces himself so that he does not waste or diffuse his efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit his opportunities. In short, Milligan may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.

No matter how much Spike accomplishes, he never seems to be completely satisfied. Spike Milligan always feels that he can do more, and sets his sights on another goal. Spike Milligan feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and he will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential.

Spike Milligan relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs him on to even greater achievements.
Spike Milligan has a strong need to gain power and he tends to dominate or manipulate other people. But in his push for success, power struggles could also thwart Milligan's efforts and he could become the victim of someone else having control over him.
Spike has the patience and the stamina to realize his visions and bring them down to earth, a fine balance between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. Spike Milligan grows by adhering to systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what Milligan aims for.

His drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Spike knows.

He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules and the like. Spike Milligan should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs throughout his life. He may change courses often and try many different things.
Achieving his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Spike's part. Specifically, Spike Milligan often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something Milligan may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Spike Milligan will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
