just read up on the Japanese 5s methodology. sort, set in order, shine, standardize, sustain the cycle

I worked my way through high school and college as a short-order-cook and I always got used to my system(s). One time a manager moved where he wanted to store the plates. Well, I was so used to going left and up for those plates that it took a really REALLY long time for me to adapt to the plates new location. I would up, to the left, realize they weren't there, and then go down to the table top below the original place. I was always so engrossed in my food prep and onslaught of high volume orders that the final piece to the puzzle was too insignificant to be burned to my memory right away.

anyway ... here's to standardization! (and then keeping it that way!) :-)
