Arms differ  ...

Point being this:  a craftsman uses the tool he has access to, and can afford.  He/she could care less about the tool.  He/she is focused on getting the job done. I suppose that begs the question:  what is the job?  For most "Pro's"?  Getting paid, (covering overhead)  ...  and not having to buy another hammer for the next job.  For the rest of us?  Perhaps, buying into the delusion that if we used the hammer a pro does, we could produce the same product. We can't, sorry.  It remains the arm of the craftsman, the skill, the vision, the years of experience honing his/her craft  ...  and perhaps, a God given gift, using the hammer   ... that results in a masterpiece cabinet.

I practice law for a living.  Law School can/will train a person to be a competant Trial Lawyer.  Law School can NOT train a person to be a Great Trial Lawyer:  that remains a "gift". In my old age, I see that holding true in general. I wonder  ... how many folks remain searching for the "gift", God gave them?  How many stopped looking? We all have a contribution to make, a purpose  ... perhaps the search, is not looking for "the tool"   ...  but "the job" we are to do?

I apologize  ...  just sitting here, on a Christmas Night  ... sharing some observations.

Warm Regards
