I have no idea what I’m doing but I know I’m doing it really well

If they was one quote that sums up my early years as a DM of Dunkin and as a GM of my current full service restaurant.  “I have no idea what I’m doing but I know I’m doing it really well”   Andy Dwyer

I will admit here and now.  I was not qualified nor prepared for either of those positions at the time I got them.

Luckily, I had the right attitude, work ethic, and a great team that recognized those things who would go one to help me accomplish my goals.

And that’s my advice kids that I meet when they’re  first coming up in the industry or going to college.  Have the right attitude and be willing to learn on the job.   You will never start a new job or career knowing everything.    It takes a least 7 years to master a job.  And where do you learn all you need to know in 7 years?  From the people around you.  From the tools provided to you.

I was near the end of 2017 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
