Kitchen Nightmares

Occasionally I will watch the TV show Kitchen Nightmares. If you haven’t seen the show it features Gordon Ramsey (a big time chef) who goes into a restaurant that is really struggling and tries to help them change and be successful.

One of the first things he does is look at the menu and order lunch. Inevitably one of his recommendations is “reduce the menu”. These restaurants have 10-20 pages for their menu and in trying to be good at everything they end up being good at nothing. When he is done, he reduces their menus significantly so they can have a few things they specialize in.

When looking at what you do, how can you “reduce the menu”?

Remember, when you try to be everything to everyone you end up being nothing to anyone.

Just something to think about.

Have a great day!
