Today’s article is shorter than usual because what I have to say is profound but so simple it doesn’t need much explanation. Here goes.
If something isn’t working, FIX IT! Don’t live with it unless you don’t have a choice. If you don’t have a choice, figure out how to make it work.
I had an“ah ha” moment the other day when I was reaching for a measuring spoon and had to dig through 3 or 4 dozen (that is NOT an exaggeration) to find the one I needed. This happens every time I need a measuring spoon! But instead of doing anything about it, I just complain. So the other day I decided enough was enough and fixed the problem.
I divided my measuring spoons into categories and determined I had the following spoons:
- 11 – Tablespoons
- 5 – ½ tablespoons
- 4 – teaspoons
- 5 – ½ teaspoons
- 12 – ¼ teaspoons (no wonder I always pull those out first!)
- 2 – 1/8 teaspoons (which I NEVER use)
I got rid of the broken spoon and the one with no label. I kept a few of my favorite teaspoons, tablespoons and half teaspoons and put away the rest. I can’t believe how much easier it is to find what I need. I should have done this a long time ago!
Is there something in your kitchen that isn’t working and needs fixed? What about in your house? What about in your life? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but if it is, what are you waiting for!
