Lessons learned from… a glass of water

A ridiculous place to learn something, I know.  But here`s the lesson, take it for what you will:


Filling up a glass of water this evening, I realized that `full blast` from the tap is actually counter productive.  The water comes out with such force that a good amount of it spills right back over the side.  In fact, it takes almost twice as much tap water to fill the glass when it`s on at full blast than it does when the tap is reduced to, say, 50% power.

How often in our lives do we exert maximum force when something less will be not only as effective, but more effective?  Something to think about, perhaps.
