I have a friend, an extremely talented chef. His food is an otherworldly experience, those who have taste it says "He can make anything into
something better.." Ive eaten the fruit of his labor, and its truly amazing.
One day he started complaining to me. A man i never saw complain about anything. Cause he did just one thing and one thing only, make the food into a
divine experience.. People flocked just to taste a little bite and he enjoyed it. His reward was not the pay, but when people said.." Wow, that is
the best thing i have ever eaten " His whole world was created around food and nothing else.
He as many others got a new boss. A person in place not cause of skills or experience, but instead;" Who do you know?".
A person living like so many others, who climbed the ladder of sinful acts, stepped on the souls innocent men, women and even children..
Just to declare themselves over a glass of wine;" I am an emperor "
The person had a fantasy, and it was just to make another dime. Without the experience, that dime will cost you instead a dollar or even more.
He was told to cook, not out of his imagination as a great chef, but out of the fantasies the new boss sadly put in place.
He tried and tried, eventually he said;" We dont even serve this to rats " The boss replied;" My way or the highway "
A few months passed, and the smile of the magnificent chef began to turn upside down. So he and me sat down in a far away place and talked for a
while. I simply said this simple tale.
When the person makes a decision based on the lack of experience and fantasies, and you say nothing with your experience, wouldnt it be better telling
the person.. "You lack the experience to make that judgement, if you cant trust me then i have no place here in the first place"
Thirty days later, he said;" I was afraid" He changed workplace to a place where he grew to what he was suppose to be, his hands were not tied and
he bloomed to a chef that won multiple prizes all over the world. People can enjoy his food once more.
And the old Boss is still on a loosing streak.
