Use Tools As They Were Designed

See Our YouTube Channel! A spoon works best when used correctly and not turned over. Other tools work best when you understand how to use them. Watch as my grandson Beckett gets the hang of things as he eats.

So, when was the last time you looked around to be sure you were getting the most out of the tools you have? What about the programs on your computer? Or the apps on your phone? Or even tools like a vacuum or your car?

Because Beckett is learning most things for the first time and I’m watching him, I see the steps he takes to learn. And though it’s easier to shove a spoon into a bowl of cereal or deep into a cup of yogurt, the spoon works best when used as it was designed.

Scoop, fill it halfway to all the way, turn it toward your mouth, and insert, cleaning it with your tongue and lips.

But seriously, do you EVER stop to think about it that way? Of course not. If you had to stop to think about how to use a spoon, how to put toothpaste on a brush, or how to pull your socks up before putting on shoes, you would waste a LOT of time during the day. Time (and brain power) you need for other things.

So as my grandson Beckett learns how to use simple tools, I’m helping him use them correctly – SO much easier to learn something correctly the first time and not have to go back to learn it later! Just one of many life lessons during the day!
