My friend, Marcel, in Holland, sent me this new miracle instrument.
We're all subject to what I like to refer to as the blame game. When our system doesn't sound right what's the first thing we do? Assign blame: time of day, equipment choices, maybe even the barometric pressure.
Could it be that that we take this course as a shortcut? If the object of my blaming is in fact the culprit then I win.
Place blame, fix problem.
Too often, in both equipment and personal interactions, my first choice of assigning blame is wrong. This requires me then to backtrack and lose ground.
At my age, I hate losing ground.
Perhaps a better strategy might be to investigate first, assign blame second.
Probably worth a try.
