“You don’t mind if I cut the cheese?”, I asked my colleagues eating lunch with me at our workplace cafeteria. As I said it, I held up the table knife I keep at my desk and the block of cheese I was eating that week (and probably the next week too). It was a good cheddar I got at Costo. As in most everything, it pays to avoid convenience and do the work yourself. In this case, I was cutting the cheese to have with the crackers and salami I was having for lunch that day. Just like the way I pay myself to carry a box of snacks to work (instead of paying the man that stocks the vending machine), just like I pay myself to bring my own iced tea to work, I can also pay myself to not only bring the cheese to work, but to also to cut it into slices.
