Monty: I watched my wife’s routine at breakfast for years. I noticed that she made lots of trips between the fridge, stove, table, and cabinets, often carrying a single item at a time. One day I told her, “You’re wasting too much time. Why don’t you try carrying several things at once?”
Hector: Has it been quicker since then?
Monty: Definitely. It used to take her twenty minutes to make breakfast. Now I do it in ten.
