The intelligent use of space by David Kirsh

Kirsh describes processes of organising a work space so as to pre-make decisions and make less on-line decision-making necessary; for example, laying out the vegetables to be cut in order clumps the decision-making at the beginning of the process, so that later as the other tasks begin all the cook has to do is follow the jig that she has laid out for herself. The possibilities open to her are restricted in such a way as to make the path that she earlier decided upon also the path that is easiest to follow without looking or thinking further.
