What is tinkering?
Tinkering is messy but highly productive work. When we tinker, we fiddle around with things. Rather than following a series of steps in a process, task directions, or a teacher’s directives, we play with things in order to improve them or uncover solutions we didn’t even know we needed in the first place.
Tinkering enables us to know things deeply–well enough to reinvent them.
Tinkering helps us know ourselves better as well. When we tinker, we slow down, wonder, practice patience, and become more mindful.
