Great Burgers

As I chewed my way through an Angus Burger at Rockit in Chicago back in 2019, a truism occurred to me:

The way to separate great meat from the merely good is to serve it well-done. A patty made from “good” meat will offer decent texture and the flavor of the grill. A “great” patty will give you both along with great flavor from the meat itself, even when on the edge of being overcooked.

So yes, thanks, I will have mine well done, please.

Team Shanghai

Shanghai Office, 2018

As I walk through our US offices I cannot but wonder how my younger colleagues would react to an office environment that would have them sharing a 7’ x 7’ table with six other colleagues – not as a conference space, but as a an office.

After a week here – seated on a bench in a tiny storage space with my lap as my desk, hemmed in with boxes filled with brochures and swag – cubicles began to seem luxurious.

I will always be filled with admiration and gratitude for this team, who performed miracles in business growth and client service with a bare minimum of overhead, and yet sustained remarkably high spirits.
