CORE STORIES, MY ESSAYS

GETTING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

Wasting food in the kitchen is not something that I often do. Guess I get that from my mother.

When I develop a recipe, I have to get it right the first time. If I don’t, then that’s money down the disposal.

When I go into that kitchen, I’m all business. There is no failure option for me. That being said, on the occasion that I do fail, I always make a positive out of it, but I never, ever feel good about it.

That feeling in itself motivates me to have fewer failures, because I don’t like not feeling good – about anything.

I’m the type of person who doesn’t take well to being jolted or prodded by others. It doesn’t feel good.

I take care of jolting and/or prodding myself. It’s called self-correcting behavior.

We all have that capacity as humans, being part of the animal race to which we belong.

Imagine that.

One race includes us all – the animal race.
