Set the Bar!

2037936 s 142x150 Set the Bar!One day a wife was cooking rolled beef for Sunday lunch. Her husband was with her in the kitchen and watched her meticulously cut off a piece of the roll at the one end before cooking it. He was curious and asked her why she cut a piece off the end. She replied that she had always seen her Mother do it and so she did too. Now they were both intrigued so they rang her Mum and asked her why she had always cut the end off a roll of beef and she said that she’d always seen her mother do it and so she did too. Now they were all intrigued and so the husband phoned his wife’s grandmother and asked her why she had always cut the end off a roll of beef before cooking it. She said that she used to go to a very generous butcher and as she had a particular dish that she liked to cook the beef in and she’d usually have to trim the end off the roll in order to fit it into the dish!

Two generations after her, the family was still doing something out of ‘tradition’ without questioning the reason why it was done that way.

Don’t let the ‘the way it’s always been done’ make you live less than is best for you.
