    Default Words to Live By.

    Weird how so many of these ring true, I've been a different person since I heard one of these 2 years ago, I'd just started my current job and in the first week whilst trying to make a good impression I was working hard, real hard, my boss came over to me and told me to "work smarter not harder". I've never felt as educated as I did that day and that saying has been at the forefront of my thinking since!

    That's step 3. Step 1 is to swear at it. Step 2 is to hit it with whatever's available.

    Step 4 -

    Buy a new one to replace the one you busted with the hammer.

    Since the idea is just an extension of "If it jams, force it" then clearly it just needed replacing anyway.
