Let’s do the reverse order of the title
Self-discipline. All people who know me well and I consider myself a highly disciplined person. I’ve been that way for many many years and I think it is a key factor that helped me to achieve what I’ve achieved. I’m proud of it. But there is a fine line between being self-discipline and over-achieving. If a self-disciplined person becomes an over-achiever… it can be dangerous. I’ve been there once and I wasn’t happy.
Last weekend I talked to a friend who I respect a lot. For many, he is a successful man. He has a Ph.D in chemistry engineering. He is working at an international firm with a great career prospect. I wouldn’t doubt that he is enjoying his life. But unfortunately he is not. He thinks he still have a lot to achieve. He knows that phDs are not good at human relations, we spend too much time alone doing research, so he thinks he has to push himself to be good at it. I thought he studied chemistry because he liked it or he was good at it. No, chemistry was the only course he didn’t get As, so he chose chemistry to be his career. The idea of putting oneself into uncomfortable place all the time, trying to master what one is not good at is SHOCKING to me. Really? Is good to “harm” or push oneself this way? Am I the only one who thinks that we should enjoy what we have and do what we are good at?
Calphalon One Infused Anodized 9″ Chef’s Skillet with Lid
- Diameter: 9″
- Material of skillet: heavy-gauge infused anodized aluminum
- Material of lid: brushed stainless steel
- Material of handle: cast stainless steel
- Oven safe
It’s smaller that I expected but it’s large enough for one person’s serving. Here I made a stir-fry of lotus root, onion and mushrooms in olive preserve.
The only cons about this pan is that it’s not nonstick, even I put more oil than usual, it sticks a little.
Thanks CSN people for letting me do the review
