Every day, every place, we are continually presented with opportunities to learn. Not all lessons are obvious upon first glance. Wax on. Wax off.

Show up hammered on your first day at any job, then slightly less drunk everyday to make it appear that you're constantly improving.

My first chef who turned into a friend gave me a great piece of advice..

 

As soon as you go into the kitchen put a put of water on the stove to boil. Every once in a while walk over to the pot, stir it, then continue to work.

 

If someone in the kitchen won't stfu and doesn't understand that "I'm working" means to go away, say excuse me and walk over to the pot and stir until the person leaves. Repeat as necessary.

 

When asked what you're doing, say making a reduction.

WOW.     That's brilliant.     I'm serious too.

the pointy end of the knife doesn't go into your hand/finger/arm/leg/friend's eye.

 

but seriously: head down, @$$ up.  and... doing anything SLOW is doing it WRONG.
