Soft n gentle is better

August 30, 2015

Yes, we do gradually switch to top gear. As that sequence of activity becomes familiar we don’t merely tend to do it faster but rougher. Whether it’s pulling the wire out of the extension box, or pulling out the tablet from its case and setting it up, or segregating that rote list of items in the morning or flipping a switch, they are all prone to a rougher touch. And our folly squares us in the face only when the cord snaps, the thing shatters, the fabric tears or the liquid spills. And trust me probably there’s few of us who hasn’t sat there wondering why we didn’t do it gentler, softer. As a rule train yourself to be consciously soft on stuff. Softer/more gentle seems to mean longer shelf-life, lesser problem.
