Six months ago, I hated cooking.
The mental energy it took to think about what I wanted to eat, leave the house to buy groceries, and the mediocre food that would emerge after hours of effort had a terrible effort/reward ratio.
As a result, I never bothered learning.
Fast forward to today; I’m choosing to cook rather than eat out if I have the choice.
Living in an RV as a vegan forced me to understand the fundamental basics of cooking. As my ability grew, so did my motivation to do it. All I had to do was get past the initial friction.
We often discount an activity because it’s unpleasant, but for challenges we face every single day – it might be worth tackling them head-on so that we may spend a lifetime reaping the benefits.
