Chefs, make sure you connect with your own humanity today.
Maybe you’ve made a mistake, messed up prep, plated the wrong order, let your team down, said the wrong thing. But acknowledge that that’s not all of you.
Maybe in that moment, you acted out of a sense of urgency, out of having to prove yourself. Maybe you reacted without thinking, or were afraid of not having the answer.
But remember that in the very next moment, you get a fresh start and the opportunity to act from a better place, chef.
