I spent my Labour day helping my mother make multiple batches of salsa. This was worth the effort as I got a dozen jars of salsa out of the deal. When you take my normal consulting rate into account, each jar is worth $12.5. While that may sound like a lot, when you consider how much superior the homemade salsa is to anything you can buy in a store it was a bargain. This got me to thinking about why our society had devolved into one that worries more about quantity over quality. Looking at how many projects I have on the go at the moment, I certainly am no better than anybody else, though I am trying to finish off all my outstanding projects so I can focus on only a couple of personal projects and whatever I am being paid to do.
