Turning luck into lessons.

Two of my team members and I recorded our season one recap episode for Top Restaurateurs this morning. It’s going to be a fun one to listen to.

Nate, our Director of Business Development, said something that jumped out at me during our conversation. He said one of our guests was very good at turning luck into lessons.

Too often we fail to look back at how we got to where we are. Often times, connecting the dots backwards shows us the things that happened while we were working. They are events that were critcal to our success, and if repeated, could continue to help us achieve our future goals.

We can’t assume it was just our hard work and continue on relying on more hard work. We have to take into account where we got lucky and then focus our future hard work towards repeating that luck.
