Every restaurant’s office has a drawing board. And usually, even more than one.
The drawing board approach is good when you start:
- Doubting yourself
- Feeling blocked and unproductive
- Repeating the same mistake over and over again
At that time, there’s a big chance you have to take some time off and rethink your strategies.
Restaurants require thinking time so your specific strategies can be applied.
It demands attention to detail, but at the same time, a good amount of flexibility.
There is nothing wrong with revising what doesn’t seem to work. Athletes do that all the time.
Runners run a few bad races, sit down with their team, and rechecked everything.
A team that’s been losing a consecutive amount of games has the coach and everyone involved rethink and reposition themselves.
If professional athletes and teams review and readjust their original plans, then why would you not?
When restaurants owners do, it provides them with more
- Self-reflection and a bigger overall picture
- Ways to do things differently
- Understanding of what has to be changed
- Comprehension of why the changes needed to occur
Drawing boards are part of any restaurant’s evolution.
If your restaurant’s office doesn’t possess a whiteboard, then hardship will be knocking at your restaurant’s doors very soon.
Don’t let that happen!!!
