The ability to follow a recipe to the letter is one of the most valuable skills in life. The groundwork for your life lays in the repeated execution of a simple recipe, successfully of course. It translates into other areas of your life. For instance, as long as you have instructions you can create anything from bookshelves to home remedies to Broadway musicals.
There is power in following a simple recipe. Once you understand a recipe, then you can move on into deeper knowledge. You can begin to experiment, teach and create your own methods. You start to master techniques and the broader concepts behind those simple instructions. Epiphanies happen. As you obtain mastership, wisdom follows. The power over your journey through this life comes from the underrated skill of following a recipe. Cook on my friend, cook on.
