Exact Instructions Challenge - THIS is why my kids hate me. | J.Darnit

We asked the kids to write instructions for a simple task but left out that we were going to be following their instructions EXACTLY as written. Great lesson for communication and a fun practice in patience!

Without watching, from reading the description, I sit here rubbing my hands together mumbling 'this is going to be good'....

[Edit] :lol:

In building a statue, a sculptor doesn't keep adding clay to his subject.He keeps chiseling away at the inessentials until the truth of its creation is revealed without obstructions. Perfection is not when there is no more to add,but no more to take away.

A good place to drop this medium article: ... 1ae56a7299
I call this method: Elementary Task In Progress (ETIP).
If you are stuck in your project because the task in progress is too complicated, chances are, your task is not an ETIP. Turn it into an ETIP by applying the following steps:

Break the task in progress into simpler, more basic steps.
For each individual step, break it up even further until it is in its most elementary form. This is your ETIP.
Pick the first ETIP and start working on it.
Once done with your first ETIP, move to the next one.

Never work on a task that is not an ETIP!

Remember, the task in progress should always be so elementary that its execution is straightforward.

I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned. - Richard Feynman

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. - Nikola Tesla
