Here’s another great example of “always put your stuff away.”
The 1/8″ to 1/4″ adapter that came from my headphones was missing. I searched for a week and ended up finding it in the headphones plug of my audio interface, where I had unplugged it “just for a few”. I needed up putting the audio interface away, with the adapter still in place. I finally remembered that today.
So always put things in their place! Then you’ll know where things are. Either that or have fewer things.
