I was recently making french toasts, and when everything came out beautiful and tasty, I thought about the recipe.
How am I supposed to remember how much milk, sugar, butter, and yolk I need?
Then I took the bowl within which I had mixed everything, and figured the whole recipe had to fit into it.
This is a personal metric.
I can’t tell how much of each ingredient is needed, but I can tell that the whole recipe shouldn’t take more than a small kitchen bowl.
Think about it.
If you ever struggle to remember everything, and you’re not comfortable with the metrics that are used, use your own.
Use your own inner system to comprehend the world you live in.
