Hell, every year, month and minute focus on what you love.
All of us feel truly fortunate to do work that we are passionate about. Our general duties are eating, drinking, dreaming, and creating. What’s not to love? Of course, it’s not all small-batch mezcal tastings and unicorn rodeos. There’s multi-day work benders, restaurant fires, and a few incidents of food-borne illness (in all fairness it was Mongolia. But at the end of the day and year, we do what we love and are damn proud of everything it took to do it.
If this year was any indicator, 2020 is going to be a wild one. That makes pushing the chaos to the periphery and zeroing in on what matters to you even more important. Consider your place, people, and purpose. If something doesn’t ring true then try to change it. If it makes your heart swell with a resounding “YES!” then plant your feet and fucking fight for it. Yeah sure, easier said than done but at least it’s solely in your/our hands. Focus on what you love and that’s exactly what you’ll see.
See you in 2020.
