  1. Habit is terrible.

    For more than ten years I have tidied up as I went along which only adds to the total time of the procedure. These days I want to only do those steps that move the coffee beans to the moka and leave the tidy up to the nine minutes while I wait for the moka to brew the coffee. However, I compulsively re-seal the coffee pack, sometimes put the grinder back on its shelf and also brush up spilled grains even though these are not essential steps. It could take me quite some time before a speedy process dominates the tidy process: that means I leave to the end the re-sealing, the replacing of grinders and wiping up spilled grounds.

    Which brings me to another motto: you can tidy up speed but you canĀ“t speed up tidiness.
