The right tools for the job.

Having the right tools for the job can make all the difference between success and failure in a new venture.

A month ago I had the opportunity to get a new tabletop projector for my classes. Now I already owned an old InFocus projector that works…fine. Not great, poor resolution, weighs a ton, but workable. The new nifty projectors aren’t cheap, and even at half price for slightly used (one time going out of business thing, so no use asking for my source) it was still a price tag needing serious consideration.

But then I got to thinking, what was there to think about? Was I worried the new venture wouldn’t pan out? Nope. That’s defeatist thinking. I’m passionate, I’m prepared, I’m ready. This is going to work. So really, having the best tools for the job, a good laptop, a spiffy little projector I can actually carry and set up myself, a good relationship with my sites, those things are actually really going to contribute to my success rather than be a burden. They’ll make it that much easier to succeed.

So I bought a portable screen.
