Who Really Likes Leftovers? Ideas?
I have leftover turkey, ribs (pork and beef), brisket, mac & cheese, and pulled pork sitting in my fridge. Who’s going to eat all of that? Who wants to eat all of that? This is a problem. Before getting started, I had to work off some of the holiday blessings … food that is.
I went for a run.
It was a great way to clear my head while I concentrated on not falling. I was successful, by the way, at not falling. At the same time, it gave me the chance to think about everything that I have. There are people dying for a full refrigerator. Here I am complaining about it.
Then all of a sudden there was a rush of ideas that hit.
Have you ever had that happen? Just when you least expect it, you get one of the best ideas that you’ve had in a long time. Maybe not one that will cure cancer or keep middle-aged men from balding, but still something pretty cool.
Once I had done my post-run stretches, I went inside and found a pad and a pen and I started to write. It was amazing. This was some pretty good stuff. I’ve had good ideas before but I didn’t really do much with them.
Where do you put it?
This could be a question for someone that eats more than their fair share of leftovers. But in this case, I’m wondering what to do with the ideas. It’s certain that just as quickly as they came, they will also leave. So, how do I bottle up that enthusiasm coupled with the eureka moment? Here are some ideas.
- Don’t save the leftovers (ideas). Use them now. Implement them. If you don’t you will have wasted them.
- Don’t make more than you need. However, if you end up with a surplus of ideas share them with others. Maybe they can use them.
- Don’t forget that it’s all about the other person. So, as your sitting there wondering how this effects you. Stop it.
We’ll all be much happier if we consider others first.
After all, isn’t that what Thanksgiving is all about.
Maybe next year I’ll offer a Cyber-Monday special with all of my surplus. 🙂
