Ski boot fitting

Several years ago I had my first pair of custom insoles made for my ski boots. My ski boot fitter told me, “I don’t want you to have to make a move to make move“. His goal was to position me in my boots so that when standing in them naturally, I would be able to exert whatever input into the ski without having to shift first. There’s some good life philosophy in there. I prefer to see it in more abstract terms, but concrete examples are easy to find. I recently embarked, and finished, a month-long project to organize my possessions in my shop building. At 1,000 square feet, it’s pretty big; larger than a typical three car garage. And while it was not disaster, it had become useful only for storage. If I wanted to bring a vehicle in to work on it, I first had to move stuff out of the way. I couldn’t use it as a gym either. And it really wasn’t working very well as storage either.

It’s organized now. Not to perfection, but each bay now has a purpose; one for storage, one for vehicle maintenance and other projects, and one for my gym. It’s already paid dividends; just the other day I decided it was time to tackle a small home improvment project. I set up my workspace in the middle bay, did my fab work, cleaned up, and was done. I didn’t have to make a move to make a move … I just decided to work on something, so I did.It’s organized now.
