I stare out the window.
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Shoes or boots?
Quick and easy OR appropriate for the task and the environment?
It’s so hazy, maybe just another half cup of coffee.
How many layers do I need to don?
Is this going to be a quick 5-10 minutes or a thoroughly completed task?
Which tool for this day?
It’s so hard to make a decision.
Is it fluffy, sparkly snow? Is it hard, crunchy, pellety snow? Is it a combination?
The shovel was used the day before to clear a walkway plus in case the wind caused the snow to drift back in. On this morning the broom was the best tool for the new inch of accumulation. What tool will be needed next time?
Tools: Consider the ones needed FOR the task as well as the ones needed FOR prep for the task. (Footwear, winter clothing, food, drink)
What tools do you need for preparation for your work today? What tools do you need to actually complete your tasks? Are your tools limiting your responses?
