Give excellence a shot....


Recruiting for a chef often includes an audition: it’s called a tasting, and the final candidate cooks one of his or her signature dishes. There are other instances where recruiters hold auditions: for acting jobs, technical jobs, and others…. but of them all the auditions that include meals have always been a favorite of mine. That’s because meals today are more than food: in addition to the taste, it’s the creativity, the plating, and the overall presentation. Everyone’s a foodie, and all like to be impressed, and when a prospective chef delivers excellence, it gives him or her the best shot at the best future they can have coming. All cooks dream of becoming the next celebrity chef, just like everyone doing anything has the same dream in their chosen field. If you want to be great, make a commitment to doing everything great, every time.  Give whatever you’re doing your best shot today.
