I love this show, Chef's Table, on Netflix... It’s so good that I rewatch episodes of it all the time. It’s amazing how much detail they go into about the world's greatest chefs and how they approach their work. If you didn’t already know chefs are among the hardest working people there are, and they’re also artists. Everyone on this show is undeniably inspiring and you’ll probably either want to eat something or cook something immediately after watching this show. Seriously… I watch these amazing chefs, and I ask myself, "What if I tried to be as good as them at comedy?" I know if I approached my comedy the way the chefs on Chef's Table approach being a chef I’d make some serious strides. One thing is for sure and it’s that these chefs are 100% committed. They are all focused on what they’re trying to achieve. They’re all incredibly hard workers who are all focused on developing their skills. The crazy thing is every one of them is already world class.
These amazing chefs all made it happen for themselves. They worked hard and they achieved. One of the most obvious things I’ve learned from the show is you have to be a doer because doers get things done. Having a daily practice and being disciplined is super helpful in developing yourself into a doer.
You need an action score and it must be a high action score. An action score basically means you get things done. A low action score is bad, and means that you don’t accomplish much.
I write everyday to make myself a better writer and it makes me feel a sense of satisfaction and self confidence which permeates into other parts of my life. Although I may not be writing the next big thing writing itself has certainly gotten a lot easier and that is where I get my win.
