Baking is Life Plan and Cooking is a Life Guide

Originally, I planned to write this article with life guide is better than life plan, but eventually I realized that it doesn’t work that way. There are different perspective people see the world in, different lenses that most of the time we cannot fully understand or just do not have the opportunity or will to see it. Now let me show you my thoughts about these two terms.

BAKING IS A LIFE PLAN

A lot of people would describe baking as a science, as it must be the right amount of ingredients and the right procedure  and right temperatures. More like having a controlled environment to prove something inside the lab. We all have plans, and more often plans doesn’t go smoothly as we desired it to be(like having to exercise every morning :P) .

“Life plans aren’t absolute but rather  very fragile things,”

We populate the list like crazy and not think of the effect of things we just added and the things we originally had on a list, like  adding dark chocolate to a rich cheese cake(yes I tried this, it taste a bit off :P).  Life plans aren’t absolute but rather  very fragile things, every condition must be fulfilled to get the result you want. Usually these are for people who are very Strict and ruthless to get what they want. People who have very firm grip on what they want and will do anything to reach it. Think of it as a lab experiment to reproduce a result that a lot of people already has done.The upside for a life plan is when you do things right you get the prize!( I personally find this a bit of too good to be true.:P)

Cooking is like a Life Guide
20130725-112434.jpgI presume that you guys cook(if not why not start? I promise to eat the first attempt:D). My mom is a food caterer so I get to be the food taster!(yey for me!) , I noticed when my mom is very Happy, expect a meal fit for the king of kings! On the contrary, when she’s in a foul mood, expect something saturated(seriously!). Then I thought of the line ” love is the ultimate ingredient in food” , I figured the complexity of cooking makes it all mysterious in a way. Like cooking there isn’t really a process that you NEED to follow,

“Like cooking there isn’t really a process that you NEED to follow, but rather its more of creating your own process for achieving something YOU own. “

but rather its more of creating your own process to achieving something YOU own.   Yes I must admit this process is something that will likely get you to commit more errors than having a life plan, but the upside for this one is you don’t need to restrain yourself when getting what you want, you just put little adjustments to point you the right direction .

In the end of the day, nobody really decides which one will you follow, will you be a Baker or a Cook? Nobody can really say this but YOU. I Just aim to give my insights on the matter and let you think for a while are you cooking something or baking something?.

Ideal Leader

Every election season, you can’t not possibly feel it as this is the season, where politicians are brimming with projects that are supposedly done during their term, not at the end of their term. I can’t blame people for having their choice of poison.

I’m here to point out my ideal leader traits

Accountability
One of the rarest thing I see with leaders today, one reason here is that they do not hold themselves accountable for their mistakes because they realize it will blemish their “clean” figure. A basic tactic and evasive maneuver they do perfectly like Tom Cruise in the Matrix evading bullets fired at him. I personally would not trust someone who is not accountable for his actions may it be a positive action or a negative action. Accountability is one of my principles. A man with out this is no better than the an animal who runs away when it things get hot.

Competence
Ahh yes. The law states that anyone could run for office as He is at least 40 years of age , natural born Filipino, has 2 years residence in the area which he is running for ( do correct me if I am wrong with the details) . I do not see anything that requires you to have even a bachelor’s degree. Its not new where some crazy dude from the street files a certificate of candidacy, without knowledge nor experience of politics. People tend to choose candidates based on popularity and later shit brix when they find out they are not capable of handling things effectively. Having the charisma is not enough to lead but it also takes competence.

Passion
Yes, passion. A passion to serve the people and uphold the constitution that is by the people, for the people. Without passion you will go astray from your purpose as a leader. You are to show the people that you are one of them and willing to work for them not them working for you. That is why you are called public servant because you serve the public. if the candidate does not have the passion to serve, it would be a shame to call him a ” servant leader” . A term used by salesians of Don Bosco . Leader of the people and servant of the people.

Professionalism
Wew , this one is a bit tough. Some people describe the senate or the congress as the circus. As grown people act like untutored kids. Fighting like kids and raising voices the list never ends. Professionalism is defined in the dictionary as qualities to mark a profession. I need not to elaborate on how they should act .

These are just some of the traits i find in a leader or rather in general a person.

P.s. : this is my opinion, want to bash me for it? Hit the comments! And here’s a bamboo for another trait
