You walk into the store and get what you came for.
The key is that the door opens on its own. You don't force it.
Yeah. And even if it doesn't open immediately, you still don't walk into the glass. You wait for a second or two until it does open.
SmartAlx, you mention counting chickens before they're hatched. But think of that literally. You wouldn't actually break the eggs open too early because you're so anxious to have those chickens. You'd wait until they hatch, all in good time.
