Her Dad's Hack
"New technology and upgraded tools were advertised in the local hardware stores, but my dad wouldn’t upgrade his tools with every new release," Leonidas recalls.

"He always said that good handiwork doesn’t rely on expensive tools. He meant that a skilled worker will know how to use the basic tools at hand to perform the job, get to the root of understanding the problem by understanding its mechanics, and that my brain is the most effective hardware. The lessons he taught me were how to get creative, be disciplined, and persistent."

"I still maintain he only told me this to get me to curb any impulsive spending tendencies and so that he could have an excuse to hand-down his power drill with the heaviest old battery," she says. "He still thinks that the drill is worth something, if not just to weight-train my biceps every time I pick it up."
