What is your favorite restaurant of all time? 

Why?

Most likely the reason you love your favorite restaurant is not the location, building, music, environment, cost, or the wait staff.  The reason most of us love our favorite restaurant is the food

Reggie’s Barbecue and Wings in Jackson, Tennessee has been around for 29 years.  It has occupied several locations in Jackson; including a shed-like structure with seating for about 10 people to one of its current locations inside a gas station in North Jackson. 

The reasons Reggie’s has survived these less than desirable locations are due to two factors:  A hardworking owner and award-winning food.  People drive from all over West Tennessee to eat some of the best barbecue and wings money can buy. 

A restaurant’s survival or failure depends mainly on the food.  They may have the greatest environment, the best prices, and best looking wait staff, but if the food is below par it is only a matter of time until they close their doors.

Where you work….you are the food

People may come in the door due to your location, they may really enjoy your environment, and they may be thrilled with your products, but they will choose to stay and come back later…because of you! 

When people talk about a business, I have rarely heard anyone complain about the lighting, the carpet color, or the location. 

People bank, shop, or purchase from you because you give them what they are looking for, a relationship and a smile.      

Now…go upgrade your menu!

Remember today:  BE TOP NOTCH FOOD!

By the way…check out Reggi’s BBQ here. (and turn down your speakers)

starting line

 

But it has to be good before I start, right? 

I don’t want to disappoint anyone. 

I can’t release poor work.  I can’t let “half way there” be seen.  My words have to be perfect.  My content has to be flawless.  My ideas have to be complete.  I must begin at expert level.

My first work has to be my best work.

Isn’t that ridiculous? 

At one point Michael Jordan learned how to dribble a basketball.  At one point, Eric Clapton was taught how to hold a guitar.  At one point, Google looked like this

Everyone must start somewhere.  Everyone must start.

So go start!  Go make mistakes, misspell words, butcher jokes, break prototypes.  Go be awful! 

After all, better to be dreadful today, (when your audience is small), than when you are expected to produce great work.

Something down on paper is always better than the idea that stays in your head.

Remember Today:  JUST START!
