Right in the middle of a global pandemic it hit me. the feeling of being out of control or being helpless was less about my surroundings and more about my mindset. I was stuck in the thinking that I was powerless and things were 'happening' to me.
It's kinda like making sushi.
I love sushi.
Anything with shrimp and rice and edamame and I'm 1005 down. it always looked so complicated and sophisticated. I thought I could never make it on my own.
And then I randomly tried to make it. I watched a few videos, bought the stuff and tried to do it.
It ended up being a hell of a lot easier than it looked.
My sushi came out pretty damn fantastic and my family of picky eaters loved it. Now i make it at least once a week for the crew.
Extrapolate this into life and the lessons you have are:
- Things that look complicated and unattainable often are easy
- Being willing to fail (and end up with shitty sushi) is necessary to success in life
- The most beautiful things can often be broken down into component parts*
- the right rice
- the right nori
- cutting the veggies/fish the right way
- a tight, compact roll
Thats it, much love…
