Here’s one of the things that happened at the two-day ____ and ____ Training:

Trainer: Let’s say you’re building a house. What’s the first thing you do?

My boss’s boss: Make a plan.

Trainer: OK.

Boss: Then we sort of pounded the stakes into the ground and, what do you call it, chalked it out.

Trainer: OK, and after that?

Boss: We checked to make sure everything was correct.

Trainer. OK. Did you dig a hole?

Boss: Yes, that’s what we did first, I guess. We dug a hole.

Trainer: So the first thing you have to do before you do anything is make a mess.
