Assumptions and Solutions
Who has tried to fix the handle on a toilet?
Most us face this challenge at some time in our lives. We go to the store and stand in front of the array of choices. Materials. Colour. Shape. Even toilets have fashion? Who knew? We scan the display. Choose. Pay.
At home, we celebrate the simplicity of the mechanism. This will be a breeze. But we struggle? Why won’t the bolt release? Do I need a wrench? Urgh! That’s really wedged on. The soft plastic bends. Will the tank crack if I try harder? I try.
Think. Watch out for assumptions. If something doesn’t work clockwise, try counter-clockwise. Toilet handles and their bolts connect counter-clockwise.
We load our life with assumptions. Let’s shake those off.
