How I learned Something by Accident

You would not know it from looking at me or knowing me in person but I am a horrible, horrible chef. Certainly because of my age in life I have acquired a large number of recipes all of which I am terrible with when it comes to preparation. Imagine my surprise when a recipe actually worked out!

Had a hankering for some Chicken Alfredo. In my normal preparation I had never added Garlic to the Alfredo Sauce. This time after making the Rue and adding the cheese I tried adding Garlic. Another miserable failure. For some reason, however, I placed the concoction in the refrigerator in case I was hungry later and went out to eat (my Alfredo was not edible so had to go out)

After my return I tried the Alfredo and it was now delicious. It seemed that it took a little bit of time for the flavors to get to know each other.

Professional Coaches often work to help our clients through difficulties in life, work, sports, and other arenas. Often the first few sessions themselves can seem like a bad Alfredo Sauce. After a little time and patience things change. When we start off with a professional coach we already have all the ingredients together that we need and we just need to take the time necessary to get to know each other.
