Let’s peel the mushrooms
We are finally catching up on season 2 of The Bear. I don’t think I am spoiling anything with this story from episode 7 when one of the greatest chefs in the world is found peeling mushrooms before her shift. When asked why she’d do a task normally performed by the most junior members of her team, she explains that she does it because it brings her back to her purpose: making her guests feel like someone has been thoughtfully in service to them.
No matter where we go or how high we rise, Uplifters, there will always be details to attend to.
When the details we focus on are out of sync with our goals, we will get stuck in place or sucked back to that old place we worked so hard to move past.
When we focus on the details that matter for where we are now and where we want to go next, we allow ourselves to keep rising.
So, go ahead and recap every last detail of that conversation, dig into the fine print on that paperwork, analyze your habits, whatever it is — as long as it’s moving you forward.
If not, let it go or give it to someone else. This week, let’s peel the mushrooms.
I would love to hear in the comments what your mushrooms are these days.
Thank you so much for being here! Let’s keep rising higher, together, 💓 Aransas
