In The E-Myth Revisited, Michael Gerber encourages entrepreneurs to develop business systems, going as far as to suggest we should build our businesses as if we intended to create franchise operations. This idea of process and systems is a popular one-taken to an extreme by people such as Tim Ferris in The Four Hour Workweek.

Technology is great. But it can also make us its slave. For instance, TTL flash is pretty good at solving lighting problems on the run. (See, McNally? I'm open-minded...) But those problems existed long before we had TTL flash—or TTL exposure metering, for that matter.And yet, we solved them on a regular basis. Even without feedback on the backs of our cameras.

While you often hear people remark on how much they love the paint or furniture, the covering on the floor tends to fade into the background and become a strong supporting character.
