Widget Thinking uses a metaphor to give clarity to our decisions.
It is the foundation of good decision making.
Your Weekday Widget
This is what you agreed to create at work in return for a salary.
If your workplace was a factory, you add this on the assembly line.
You create this - and your employer pays you.
Your Boss's Widget
This is what your boss is paid to create.
Your widget helps your boss to create her widget.
Your boss's widget relies on your widget.
Your Employer's Widget
This is what your employer creates.
If your workplace was a factory, this comes off the assembly line.
It's the end product of lots of widgets including yours.
Your Weekend Widget
This is what you are able to do because you work and make widgets.
It is the reason that you work.
