My main focus for today was pies!! Every year (apart from last year obviously) I have the great privilege of being a judge at the British Pie Awards! As I’ve been doing it a good few years I am now usually a class leader where I help the less experienced judges if they need help.
To some this might be a dream job and yes it is a lot of fun and I get to catch up with some great friends and colleagues. But it is also quite technical too, it’s not simply just eating the pie and seeing if you like it, we look appearance, baking, pastry thickness, texture and taste, filling texture and taste. The perfect pie has a score of 100 and any defects we take off this score.
This got me thinking about my life and this transformation and what if I looked at my life and kind of scored it in the same way what would I find.
I’ve already got a number of areas I want to work on so I could create a scoring system to see how I feel I’m progressing with that area. I know I probably need to think what “perfect” looks like to me in each area and then how far I feel I am from this ideal.
This is the job for tomorrow evening!
