We all have our set of GOTO tools when we need to work a problem.

Markers, Whiteboards, NotePad++, libraries, extensions, plugins, etc, etc.

Starting with a new set of tools that are not your own feels wrong, out of place, and forced upon you.  It feels like you are trying to crush a square peg through a round hole and it refuses to go.  You keep pounding it in, but it won’t go.

Give them time, after a while, you might not value them all, but you’ll grow to like a few that might give you some benefit, save you some time, and even replace some of your older tools.  Of course, some of your older tools might still be better than what is new.

The point is, that you’re always building the better toolbox.
