Government’s Real role in EnterpriseOctober 7, 2014
Our Lusaka- Nairobi trip was long enough, for the KQ edited version of the movie Chef to just fit.Chef is a descent story, that celebrates good food, family and risk taking. It features, Chef, Joh Favreau, who is tired of cooking the same time tested food in the restaurant. One critique, degenerates into a tweef and allows him to finally begin that process of starting afresh, of getting to know his son, of finding what he loved about food, love, life and family.
Some lessons that I picked watching this movie for any young entrepreneur and professional:
- The best never rest. They are obsessed with being the best they can possibly be. And work for them is not work at all. Chef Carl is seen enjoying selecting ingredients, going to markets, cooking into the night, all of it just for the fun of it…
- Always don’t fear to take risk, if its consistent with what you love and cherish. No amount of work, career or job situation, should force you to work in an environment that you are not able to shine. You should be able to do things you care deeply.
- Bring family, especially young ones along on your work.Carl had immense pleasure passing “Chefhood” to his son.And in turn it gave him tremendous happiness and joy
- Have good friends.They are extremely important- even ex-wife as Chef Carl had. Its a small group of friends that care that allowed Chef Carl to 1st take risk, to advance, to go to Miami, to begin cooking again….Friends, few solid ones, are extremely important
- Turn misfortunes into opportunities.When Chef quits his job as a prominent LA chef, he soon becomes much much happier than he even knew…When things go wrong, you have a chance to start again.
