Gourmet Living: Your Life's Pizza
Ah, summer. The Fourth of July came and went with parades, fireworks and many family and community get-togethers.
On Saturday, we spent the evening on the dock, cooling off with frequent swims and feeling the light breeze off the lake. At about 6 p.m. I went up to the kitchen and took out my pizza stone and made a pizza (pepperoni, mushrooms, two kinds of cheeses, fresh basil and Italian seasoning). We finished it off as the sun was setting behind the hills of East Tennessee.
If you follow our blog or receive my monthly newsletter, you know I speak often about food -- finding your "menu for life," how your life is like a pizza, et cetera. All of our lives are made up of various ingredients, much like my Saturday evening pizza, but our lives are also made up of various slices that (if balanced properly) enrich us both personally and professionally. These slices of life relate to relationships, friends and family, fitness, communication skills, time management and so on.
If you would like a copy of the "personal/professional pizza" to assess how you score in each slice of life, send me an e-mail at [email protected]. To hear an excerpt from my keynote where I describe how to find balance in your life and begin to create a "gourmet life," listen to this YouTube video. And as you look on YouTube, search for "Ken Thoreson." You will find 10 other short videos from my keynote program "Gourmet Living."
