Ugly Bird Houses

“You can buy a successively more costly and high-quality series of claw hammers until you’ve reached the top of the line, but until you learn how to use them skillfully, you’re going to keep making ugly bird houses.”

— Merlin Mann (regarding “productivity tools”)

I think the hard part, at least for me, is persistently maintaining the resolve to keep building ugly bird houses until I develop the ability to build awesome ones.
