THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS

ingredientsAny person who is in command of a project, whether they be a chef, a project manager or a mom, will tell you that you need the right ingredients to have a favorable outcome and for the process to move along smoothly. Any project can be completed, but to have it executed with little to no mishaps or better than expected is where actual skill and knowledge are needed.

On Thursday, I cooked stewed beef, which I had cooked several times before. I added curry and coconut power, and it made a huge difference in the dish. It was my best stewed beef yet. My older sister had added those ingredients to some stewed pork she had cooked when she visited me a few months ago, and as little sisters do, I copied her.

My beef tasted good the way I use to cook it, but including my sisters ingredients enhanced the flavor of the beef significantly. The moral of my story is this:  most of us can do things on our own; however, the more knowledgeable you are, the better your projects will turn out. Connecting with the right people and freeing your mind to unfamiliar concepts can make a world of a difference in anything that you do. Never be afraid to learn something new.

  1. Vanessa, I’m proposing to start a sort of writers’ workshop where we can thrash out specific thorny problems. Would you be interested in participating? This post makes me think you’d have some helpful things to say.
