We humans love cooking shows.
As far back as they’ve had TV, they’ve had cooking shows.
There’s a kajillion people on YouTube that have cooking shows.
I watched one guy, using his BBQ on his front porch, make the best looking grilled cheese in planetary history.
As much as I like watching cooking shows, I suck at cooking.
Frequently I’ll watch somebody make something on YouTube.
Then I’ll try it a couple days later, but it comes out an epic failure.
But it is possible to learn to cook.
Copying and pasting a recipe just by watching doesn’t usually work so well.
Cooking, like anything else, requires practice.
And like anything else, the more you practice, the better you get.
One interesting cooking show was a kind of “mystery ingredient” type of thing.
What’s For Lunch?
It was sort of like “cooking with the stars” instead of Dancing with the Stars.
You had a regular person and a famous chef type person.
Two teams, timed cooking contest.
But the ingredients were a mystery.
They didn’t know what they had until the timer started.
Whoever cooked the best thing based on those mystery ingredients won.
Believe it or not, this weird cooking show is a perfect metaphor for life.
We all have a timer ticking right out of the gate.
(or the womb…)
Get What You Get
We all are given a random collection of skills.
We all are tossed into a random environment.
Some of us are luckily paired with some pretty decent “teammates.”
Parents, teachers, coaches, etc.
Some of us are paired with some pretty lame teammates.
Parent who didn’t want to have kids, teachers who hate their students, etc.
But the clock is ticking.
The clock doesn’t care.
But is it a contest?
If you think it’s not, you’ll be waiting around at the starting line wondering where everybody went.
There are only so many nice houses in nice neighborhoods.
Easy Way To Poverty
Find any large area, in any time in human history and the nice part of town is usually much tinier than the slums.
It’s very tempting to complain about the state of things.
To spend all your time coming up with ways that life isn’t fair.
Anybody can do that.
You’d think after about 5000 years of human civilization, if there WAS a way to make life “fair” somebody would have figured it out by now.
Whoever you are, whatever your background is, you are IN the game.
Whether you want to play or not is up to you.
How you want to play is up to you.
Whatever you DO decide to do, the clock is ticking.
