When a Belt Is Too Big

At some point in your life, have you ever put on a belt that was too big—maybe when you were 

a kid? Or maybe as a parent or guardian, your child had a belt that was too big?

When a belt is too big, you grab a steak knife, or a thumbtack, or a hammer and a nail, or a fork, or a pair of pointed scissors, or a box cutter, or a Black and Decker 20-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill, and then puncture a hole in the belt. 

Even though the belt is too big, even though it’s not a perfect situation, you make the best of the situation. 

When you find yourself in an imperfect situation, you won’t always be able to remove yourself from the situation. Sometimes you’re challenged to make the best of the situation. 

It’s not always best to replace what you have. Sometimes the better option is to make the most of what you have. 

Before you throw that belt away, consider how you may make it work.
