Food Philosophy

The Fortune Cookie Message Of The Week Club

Late this morning I enjoyed a hot and delicious Lunch courtesy of my all-time favourite take-out Chinese Food joint in the neighbourhood – Shanghai.


Here’s this week’s fortune cookie message:

– ‘Spectacular accomplishment is never preceded by less than spectacular preparation.’

I disagree somewhat with this one. You can over prepare for an event. The result can sometimes be just as bad – even worse – than a lack of sufficient preparation. Sometimes a little spontaneity can be that added touch that lifts something from standard to spectacular. Spectacular preparation is not always the key to success.
