Your Life Is a Kitchen

Your life is a kitchen. We all need to find the recipe to our lives, some recipes are great, some are okay and some are disasters. We make that decision when we go through life and we decide what we want out of it, who we want to be, who we want to be with and where we want to do it.

Often times we find ourselves looking into the pantry wondering what am I going to make, what am I going to eat and if I haven't made the appropriate plans to make something great then I don't have the ingredients or the right tools. You might have a wonderful cookbook but if you don't know how to whisk an egg it serves no purpose.

The only way to learn is by trial and error, even if you have cooking classes you're going to break many eggs before you make that perfect omelette.

There are three things you can do to make sure that your life ends up being a feast instead of a famine.

1. Tools.
Having the right tools tools are often employees, computers, trucks, or whatever the equipment is, make sure you get it. The right equipment will make all the difference in the world.

2. Ingredients.
Make sure that you have the right ingredients for your life, what kinds of things are going to make you successful. I often think of this as marketing strategies, lifestyle, and friends and family.

3. Experience.
The only way to get experience it by either living it yourself by going through mistake after mistake, or learning from someone who's already made the mistakes. You can hire these people that work for you, or you can partner with them. There is a variety of things that you can do to get experience on your side.

The end results of your proper planning will make all the difference in the world. Remember my 10 Commandments of selling, thou shalt strategize. If you fail to plan you plan to fail. Make sure the things you're planning are wonderful otherwise It won't matter if you're successful or not.

What's your recipe?
