Meeting Nigella

Meeting Nigella

A year ago today I met the brilliant Nigella Lawson as she was signing cookbooks after her The Guardian Live talk in London. So it's surreal just over a week ago I released my very first cookbook... 

All year I've been deeply motivated by something Nigella said in the Q&A segment of the night. When I asked her what advice she would give her 20-something self? She said, "Get used to fear. It exists forever so learn to work with it."

On that note, I heard something thought provoking on Tim Ferriss' podcast today about what Mike Tyson's legendary first coach Cus D'Amato who would tell his athletes before big fights, "The hero and the coward both feel the same thing but the hero uses his fear, projects it onto his opponent, the coward runs. It's the same thing - fear, but it's what you do with it that matters."

A little motivation Monday for your festive season!
