I inheritated an affinity for cooking and baking from my mother. I’m certainly not an expert chef, but I enjoy sharing home cooked meals with family and friends. I also like to experiment with new foods. Of course I have tried and true recipes learned while peeking over my mom’s shoulder, but trying new things is, to me, one of the best things about spending time in the kitchen. I never know how something will turn out. It could be a new family favorite, destined to be made again and gain, or it could go the other way and I’ll be pulling leftovers out of the freezer.
But I never let these failed experiments get me down. In fact, I don’t really see them as failures at all. No matter what, I get to learn what things work and what things didn’t. And then I get to try again.
If you don’t experiment in your independent pharmacy, you’ll never find new ways to improve. It’s important to change it up every once in a while and try new things. I’m sure that you could leave things just the way they are and truck along just fine for quite a while. But is just fine good enough for you?
