Hammers and Nails

Today’s thought revolves around this timeless quote:

“To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”

The lesson here is that just because we can do certain things, does not mean that we always should.

Experts want to use their hammers to do good for the world. Lawyers want to sue. Surgeons want to perform surgery. Shooters want to shoot.

The truth is that sometimes the job required is stupid simple and does not require a complicated, expensive hammer.

Sometimes the right answer is super obvious…too obvious for the highly credentialed, “experienced” expert to figure out.

Hammers and nails. Watch out for over-eager hammer users.
