Dave -- you've accomplished so much this past year, you deserve a few days to catch your breath every now and then.
What the hell is wrong you guys. Don't be babying Dave. I say, "Get that whip cracking and put your nose to the grindstone. You can rest when you're old and bald." Wait a minute, you might be there already. :lol2:
I'm half way to both Dan :D
Hey this was for encouragement, not busting his balls! Only Miss Ray can be brought here to do that!
If I may share Dave.
People think being a chef is about cooking. But that's not even the half of it. That is our primary passion and the tool we use to accomplish what we wish ... which when it comes down to it is to make people happy and feel good, beyond just the food. The food is common factor we use to draw people to the experience or service which we use to make friends, which will inevitably bring about conditions for our success if we understand how things come about. Knowing this it's hard for many of us to let go of our food and leave it in the hands of others to execute. But the smart ones (and this part took me a while to grasp) will know if they set their vision firm and clear the right people will be brought forth to help them execute the vision. And if you know this you can put it in their hands without worry or fear so they may help and you can move on to other things you need to accomplish putting more focus on those things. This is important because the food is just part of the means to the end. There is much to accomplish aside from the food, and the only way to accomplish anything in life is through focus, complete focus on every level without worry of other things in your life. The ignorant man would scoff at the idea and think it not possible or constantly question this fact as truth. But I assure you train your mind to think only positive with focus on your goal and purpose and no matter how big or small watch how it comes about. FOOD for THOUGHT
Or to think about how much money there is to be made in the hand made alligator luggage business.Quote:
