I was recently in a place where I needed to have a uncomfortable conversation with someone. I'm sure we've all been there. You don't want to, but you know you need to. It will probably hurt at first, but the relationship (and you) will be better off for it.
Ironically, this is very much like pulling a band-aid off.
The other day I was at a "famous coffee chain" here in Santa Monica which shall remain nameless. I entered and placed my coffee order for an iced Americano and noticed the baristas were conspicuously preoccupied with other things. I'm not sure what actually, but I will assume it was the type of side work you have to do in the restaurant biz.
Even though I've softened my approach now to work with a more general "fat loss" based clientele, I still get "THE look" occasionally, and when I do guess what I tell them to do?
I've been hearing a lot of people talk lately about how perfection is the enemy of good enough. This statement baffles, I mean in certain contexts I can understand it but sometimes I think we may be reading this all wrong. I'm afraid that some people who attempt to apply this like a blanket to their lives may be missing part of the point.
