Remember him? That’s Professor Harold Hill, the Music Man! He invented the “Think System.” It’s a marvelous thing. I use it all the time. Whenever I have a project or an idea, I start thinking about it. I envision it. Then I envision it ANOTHER way…and another way…and so on. I keep thinking til I think it will work. This process may take a day…or a week! (Or longer!?)
For example, I had a sewing project this week. I am not an accomplished “seamstress.” (I recently had to go on my phone to see how to rethread a bobbin!) But I have determination and the Think System! So I was able to create a better dust ruffle for our bed. The old one kept sagging and falling off. We really need a dust ruffle to hide all the things we store under the bed. (Typical for a small place with limited storage, we have those “flower pot” style lifts, so we can fit MORE Stuff under there. This, of course, creates the need for a longer dust ruffle!!)
It’s done. It took me two days, but I did it. Thanks, Professor Hill…you’re a genius!
I offer this to anyone who has a project that seems intimidating. YOU CAN DO IT! Keep your sanity. Keep the peace. Ciao for now….Patty ✌️??
