Yesterday I told you that cooking is the habit that has had the biggest, most positive impact on my life. But unless you’re already a regular cook you probably thought this was super depressing.
People who don’t cook inevitably groan when I suggest that cooking is the solution to their problems.
Cooking? Ugh. Something about it just makes it sound like so. much. work.
Even struggling your way through one meal is a pain. Taking the time and effort to actually learn to cook regularly? That’s just nuts.
Or at least there’s no way you could do it right now. Maybe you’ll do it this summer or something. (Translation: it will never happen)
But I also told you yesterday that there was something deeper lying underneath your aversion to cooking. Because the truth is that if you really found cooking rewarding, then you’d figure out how to make it happen day after day.
So what is it exactly that separates those who cook from those who don’t? What is it that can transform cooking from a tedious, burdensome chore to a fulfilling, creative endeavor?
