As FPS readers know, I’m an avid cook. I find it creative and relaxing and, as a single person, I take special pleasure in sustaining myself with good food. As much as I love cooking, I dread home repair. With that as context, I’ve had a growing concern about my oven, which was running between 50 and 75 degrees cooler than the indicated temperature. It was becoming a real issue when I wanted to cook things at high heat. It was clearly time to call in a repair person. Over the weekend, before making the call, I decided first to see if there was anything I could do on my own. Highly skeptical, I searched online for the oven manual – and there on the very last page, were recalibration instructions. It was easy, taking only minutes to fix. What a victory!!

      On Wednesday, I led a 2-hour networking workshop for the LA Chamber of Commerce. Recalibrating my oven in under 3 minutes was the most empowering moment of the week.
