Greatest Tool #9: Big Ole Rock

Greatest Tool #9: Big Ole Rock
The Rock

    What is more useful than a nice hefty rock? You can almost always find one the perfect size (which is just a little bigger than your fist). Yes it’s primitive but it sure makes an “I’m all business” statement.

    Look down this list and tell me you haven’t used a big ole rock for at least a few of these tasks.

    1. Body Work. Banging a dent out from inside your fender well.
    2. Door Scotch. Holding open a door.
    3. Helper. Pounding on the end of that oversized screwdriver.
    4. Persuader. Convincing the neighborhood junk yard dog to find his sport elsewhere.
    5. Secretary. Holding down diagrams on the hood of your truck.
    6. Coaching Tool. Using it to mark the defensive team players in flag football plays.
    7. Physical Science tests. Seeing how far you can skip a flat one across the lake.
    8. Emergency Access. Hiding an extra key in the bushes in case you lock yourself out. You thought I was going to say break a window, didn’t you?
    9. Fire Starter. Smack two of the flinty ones together and you can make a spark.
    10. Whetting Tool. Nothing manmade is better for putting an edge on a cutting tool.

    So Caveman, do you have a favorite “rock” tool?

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
