'thinking does not hurt'

To make it clear, the title of this entry is a rough translation of a Polish proverb. It came to my mind today after classes.
I was an operator like yesterday and I had 5 operations (10 tasks) today and struggled with 6 of them very much!! I'm pretty stubborn (what equals stupidity, as it'll turn out soon) and only that made me go down from ~320 sec to 200 sec - our target for each operator.
After a while we had some time for improvements. I had no ideas for my tasks until I turned around a bolt and the nut was on the other side of the wings. Now its effect turned out to be almost a miracle for me! Instead of holding 3 nuts inside one bracket, I had them more outwards and it saved me some time (though I still had to learn and it was not perfect all the time). Much of the waiting was still because of me but it could've been worse... :P

So in the end I was amazed that I could change the process so much, but on the other hand I was frustrated that it took me so much time to realize that.... All because I was too stubborn (oh this bloody Polish mentality heh) and 'comfortable' with the process but it was the CHANGE that happened to be a salvation for me today and I'm glad I went for it.
To conclude with, thinking did not hurt me but it needs time to develop an idea (which I wish was much faster :P).
