Far too often I don't feel "up to" working with power tools and opt to work quietly on the computer or take a break entirely.
Too often. So today I pushed forward instead, and in less than five minutes -- moments after starting the first connection -- I put my soldering iron right into a finger.
Maybe it is better to trust that little voice.
(Regardless, as soon as I can take my finger out of the glass of ice water I'm going to try that joint again).
