Nailed It

Is there anything worse than botching the order of operations?

You do all your tedious prep work to cook dinner, finish, and then remember you have to preheat the oven or put the water on to boil. You start the dishwasher just before lunch only to realize that, somehow, you don’t have a single clean fork. You go out to get coffee in the morning, driving right past the grocery store you will later have to visit for a few necessities.

Okay, to answer the question we posed initially, there obviously are many things that are much, much worse than this. But still, our point stands: it’s a bummer. Because it’s defeating. You end up with idle time that doesn’t feel idle. You can’t move forward but you can’t relax. You find yourself figuratively–or, in one of the above examples, literally–watching a pot and waiting impatiently for it to boil.

The nice thing is, if you do manage to absolutely nail the order operations, it’s not just satisfying. No way, you feel like a friggin’ genius.

You start a load of laundry, head out to run an errand, and get home just as it finishes. You install a crucial update overnight and wake to find your computer revitalized and fully functional. You plug in your phone, get some work done, and then leave for a night out with it fully charged and ready to go.

It’s all so simple, yet feels miraculous. You’ve done two things! AT THE SAME TIME! You are a beacon of efficiency and productivity! You rule!

But all of this pales in comparison to the joy of owning a robot vacuum cleaner like this Ecovacs Deebot. All you have to do is buy it and set it up, and then it vacuums and mops for you. You don’t have to remember to turn it on or turn it off. You don’t have to worry about it getting stuck in some weird place, thanks to its obstacle avoidance and upgraded TrueMapping technology. Hell, you don’t even need to empty it every day; it empties itself into its cleaning station.

In other words: with one of these, you don’t need to nail the order of operations just right to feel productive and efficient; the Deebot does it for you.

So get one.
