Our son and I love pizza! We thought it would be a fun idea to make our own (including the dough).
We found a simple pizza dough recipe, mix the contents and…well the dough barely would rise (problem). Ok…now what?
I put it in the fridge. Two days later, I pulled it out, cut it in half and made a pizza. It wasn’t bad…we will make tweaks to it the next time we make it…but it was good.
I had many choices to take from the not so perfect dough turn out. One being, toss it out and never trying that again 😊. I wanted to see how it would bake, taste, test the consistency, would the family like it, etc.
Without going through the process, even though I knew something was wrong, would not allow me to learn if this was truly a small or big mistake. Plus if I tossed out the whole situation, it would be a total waste and know true lesson learned.
I know, a little deep for just a family pizza time. But you have to admit nice take-a-ways:
- Nothing is a waste, unless you make it one (by throwing it out, quitting, etc).
- Make a mistake an opportunity to be resilient
- Learn from errors and make the adjustment needed the next time
- Sometimes you do not need to start totally over to accomplish the task, goal or dream
Until the next time…
