The Right Tool For The Job

Most kitchens of good cooks have piles of great cooking tools: whisks of various sizes, wooden spoons and spatulas, ladles, slotted spoons, and more. A dozen or more knives of various sizes and designs.

Most kitchens of great cooks have a few well-chosen tools that serve every purpose the cook intends. Three knives suffice, and a few other tools to get the job done.

The great cook knows that with skill, the right tool can do almost any job.

Same for teaching. Same for conducting, arranging, producing, designing, building.

Worry less about acquiring more tools for your job, and spend more time acquiring the skills to wield the tools more effectively.
