In 2010, I’m giving myself a chance for redemption.
Last October, I had the opportunity to cater an event for 50 people – my fear of failure resulted in my canceling and allowing another chef to take the job (read post). These past few months, I regret that I allowed my insecurities to win. I felt this failure to be a grey spot on my culinary report card.
In January 2010, I’ll have my second chance. I’ve agreed to cater the same event again. While I’m still feeling highly insecure, my time at the steakhouse has helped build my confidence – and I realized that if I DON’T do it, I will always feel I somehow failed.
January 22 is my second chance – even if it’s a disaster, I will have tried, which, for me, is one step forward.
