Maybe it’s the pace of the kitchen or our constant chase for perfection, but do you struggle with patience, chef? Patience with yourself or with others and their abilities? Chefs often struggle to disengage from their kitchen personas outside of work. More often than not, you take who you are as a chef into your other relationships.

Whether you’re challenged by waiting for someone to just get something done, or answer your question, the good news is that patience is a choice you make in the moment. You detach from your expectations, and instead accept that your timeframe is different to theirs. Sure, there are instances when you situation demands urgency, but you judge wisely when that’s the case.

The next time you’re feeling impatient, try stepping out of your position and instead connect with the other person where they are. And give yourself that same gift too – be patient and connected with yourself, chef.
