I like efficiency. Sometimes life feels like a puzzle. Solving the puzzle means achieving the ultimate efficiency.
How do I fit as many dishes as possible into the dishwasher? How do I pack everything I need in this small suitcase?
Interestingly, I found there are different solutions to those similar problems.
Just like when solving a puzzle I would start with the corners and continue to find all the edges, most solutions follow an optimal pattern.
For the dishwasher, the most efficient way I could find was to go small to large. That way, your large dishes end up covering the smaller ones.
For the suitcase, I would start with the larger items, then go smaller, filling the gaps left by the larger items.
What similar challenges have you faced? What was your solution?
