I think I have written about Automator before, and I still think it is a tool that I definitely underutilize and that most people don't frequently take advantage of.

After dragging in 4 commands (it took a bit of trial and error) I got the result I wanted.

You may want to provide something to your team member right away, but they may not be ready to receive it. Someone may have feedback for you, but if you’re in the middle of a stressful stretch of work, you might want to delay its delivery for a few days. Sometimes it’s your turn to use the road. Sometimes you have to hold off. What’s critical, for immediacy to flourish, is to resolve issues by thinking about eventualities before they happen.

Explain Everything now can insert images from Unsplash, one of the best resources for free-to-use high quality photographs.
Steve pointed me in the direction of this interview and encouraged me to read more about him (and we soon after interviewed him ourselves). He has written numerous books and taught for many years about his expertise: valuation. He also practices a generous spirit of teaching and connecting multiple projects and activities so there is no wasted effort. I recommend Narrative and Numbers, the first of his books that I have read.
