Why an egg timer?
Being that I don’t have an egg timer in my kitchen, I began to wonder the “why” of an egg timer. After a quick google search, I see that the egg timer is a device to measure the time required to boil an egg. Unfortunately, that definition doesn’t answer my question of “why.”
I think the “why” of the egg timer is to relieve not only the worry of making a mistake but also to give me the peace of mind so I can do other things while I wait for the “ding.”
Can we put an egg timer on decisions that we haven’t made?
This question really got me closer to the bigger “why.” The decision to make a hard boiled egg is what is most important. The egg timer is there to support that decision. So I guess the purpose of an egg timer is as a device to measure the time required to reach the expected outcome of the decision that you make.
Time for me to turn on the egg timer for my decision to move to San Diego so I can experience more adventure, more companionship and better weather.
