Change or Die
I’m a huge fan of [amazon_link id=”B001JXPC0U” target=”_blank” ]Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares[/amazon_link].
I’m not a particularly skilled cook, although I do know how to handle a few things in the kitchen. It’s not really about learning to cook anyway. Kitchen Nightmares is about Gordon Ramsey, a world famous chef, going into some of the scummiest and nastiest restaurants on the planet and helping them get turned around and back on track.
His lesson is always the same, “Change or Die.”
If what you are doing isn’t giving you the results you want, stop doing it.
Its the very definition of insanity to continue doing the same thing expecting different results. Yet, we do it all day, every day. We continue to shuffle through our lives thinking that if we just keep going long enough we’ll eventually be happy.
It doesn’t work that way. One day, you’ll wake up and realize that you’ve wasted your life toiling, there is no room left for happy, and you’re just crawling along towards the dirt nap. If we’re lucky, we can realize what it is we’re doing and get off the tracks before we’re past the point of no return.
Earlier this year, I decided to make a list of the things I didn’t like about my life. I haven’t figured out how to change all of them yet, and really that’s why we all need help sometimes, but I do know I need to change them, or I’ll end up depressed and miserable.
We all have things in our lives that we want to change. What are some of the changes you’re striving for?
