Harvard Business Review on Mise-en-place

Interesting take on "the meez." I think you either do or don't in most aspects of your life. For me, it's "the meez" way.

  1. I cooked in restaurants through high school and university and learned the benefits of the "Meez". And making every move count.

    As I've gotten older I've found myself winging it more. But going at things without a plan or a setup makes me feel older. I used to love juggling 15 things in my head and choreographing my moves while I raced around the kitchen.

    So I think I'll make a conscious effort to try it again. Whether it's the first 10 minutes at work or Saturday morning's chore list.

    1. Interesting. I am usually a "meez" fan (less in cooking than in other things, TTTT). The idea of starting each to-do item on your list with a verb is a good one.
