Follow Up #2

We are all going fast- a lot is happening. I was going too fast.

I can’t explain why, but from my brain to my bones, everything tells me to do whatever I can to get soup made. It is important. Too many people are losing their jobs too fast – people are scared – some are getting sick. This is happening – we have to go fast.

I started the day by pissing my team off by going too fast… I thought about slowing down for a minute.

then,

  • Chefs started sending pictures of soup they were cooking.
  • MAD emailed asking to post the message.
  • A restaurant association called asking if they could share with 4,500 members.
  • I listened to Brian Koppelman’s Podcast telling us that the world needs soup right now.
  • We started cooking.

By the end of the day, we had the first 150 gallons of soup finished and packed. Prep for hundreds of gallons more started – Dozens of restaurants from around the world joining our team ready to make soup.

Whoa – this is working.

I often have wild ideas that I can’t seem to shake, while trying to figure out if they are good or bad. (I still think a bar with puppies would have worked in college). These ideas often stay in my head until the next one comes along – I almost never share but here is one of them.

I need to talk to Tony Robbins…
Sounds crazy right??

But follow my train of thought –
Tony Robbins is trying to feed 1 BILLION people in 8 years (for real – check it out on his website www.tonyrobbins.com/contributions)
We have chefs from all over stepping up to cook food.
Tony must buy food in order to feed all those people…
why not buy a million gallons of soup from the chefs of the world – the community of chefs who just got sideswiped by all of this.

It’s pretty prefect right?

Tony Robbins, if you are interested in a million gallons of soup, we’ll get it cooked.

I can’t believe that two of the priorities in my life right now are a million gallons of soup and meeting Tony Robbins – but they are.

If anyone can help us with either of these crazy tasks – please help… we need it.
