march 23

JOURNAL TOPIC: (today's tunes: "Right Now" by Van Halen & "Until the End" by Breaking Benjamin-- or, depending on my nostalgia for Rocky & your tolerance for cheese, "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor)

What is it that drives you?  Striving toward something good that you feel within yourself?  Achieving a socially recognized goal or reward?  The fear of failure?  Something else?

1. Journal
2. Mise en place
3. Meet Jiro

I watched the movie Chef several times.  There was something about it that spoke to me, a message about working with discipline, passion and a vision of quality that brings out our best.  This approach to craft drives successful people in all walks of life.  Whether you are a designer or an insurance agent, you will discover that craft not only improves performance, it provides a sense of fulfillment.  Outward symptoms of success often follow; they are also overshadowed by the singular sense of real achievement.

This is why I want you to meet Jiro.

Last week Anaya turned our shared space into the Open Source Learning Cafe-- a powerful metaphor.

It's time to become a chef.
