So, figuring that was why the Flying Spaghetti Monster issued me with 2 arms, I switched the mouse to my other hand.
If I'm breaking ground with a mattock, I will work with my left hand leading for more than half the work, and switch to the right for the hardest bits, so it all averages out. Ditto when de-limbing, the left does the gimmes, the right does the tricky/tough stuff. Less forceful things, it's just a matter of reminding myself to use both hands about the same amount, and it's not something I think about much anymore.
So who else does this? Anyone persuaded by my glowing endorsement? Note that I wouldn't suggest starting with knives or hatchets!
