#Tools April 28

Coach4aday is a daily blog that began in 2014. The posts are mostly shared ideas to help people grow and learn. You can follow the blog with one of the like buttons found on top left of Coach4aday website.

In 2020 some Coach4aday posts will feature lessons learned by completing, planning, and experiencing 30 day challenges. The challenges include physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional.


I have been attempting during the pandemic to purge items from my outside storage building. I realized that I had a lot of TOOLS that were my dad’s that I have never used.


He had a number of cold chisels each with a different tip which I have never used. I am not throwing them away.

I began to wonder what might be the basic TOOLS every household should have. I am pretty sure that I have those items but I went searching for what the basics might be. Here is what I found on a pretty consistent basis as recommendations for a basic TOOL kit.

  1. Claw Hammer
  2.  Adjustable Wrench
  3.  Slip Joint Pliers or Channel Locks
  4. Needle Nose Pliers
  5.  Screw Driver Set-that include phillips and flathead
  6.  Tape Measure
  7. Utility Knife
  8. Power Drill and Drill Bits
  9. Level
  10. Various types of tape-duct tape, electrical tape, plumber tape, blue painter tape, packing tape
  11. Various hardware-screws, nails, nuts, and bolts
  12. Vice Grip Pliers
  13.  Metal Straight Edge or T-Square
  14. Wire Cutters
  15. Putty Knife or Scraper
  16. Hand Saw
  17. LED Flashlight

Just because you have all the right TOOLS doesn’t mean they will do the job by themselves. For me that is where YouTube Videos come in handy. There is a technique for every TOOL that experienced people can teach us.

The same is true for our leadership TOOL kit. We can have the TOOLS but we still need techniques that proven leaders can inform us on. We all need to be constantly learning from other talented leaders how to best use leadership TOOLS.
