Work hard for your exam or on some office project. The end result might not necessarily be best. Because hard work and best efforts don’t always yield optimum result! A lot of other factors come into play.
Similarly, in cooking, even when you’re putting your best efforts, the food might not be delicious. Besides, preparing food is a much more sophisticated task that requires detail attention, more care and love. Yes, “love”. Why do you think home-cooked foods are ALWAYS so delicious when compared to an extravagant meal of top restaurants? Because, as clichéd as it may sound, foods cooked with love and care are 10x better.
So to answer your question, maybe the people you’re talking about aren’t focusing properly on cooking. Maybe they aren’t careful enough to clock the proper timing, to include the right ingredients in the right amount. There could be countless reasons why they aren’t cooking well—not working hard may not fall on that list of reasons.
Remember, the learning curve here is very long. If you’re expecting a beginner to cook like a pro, that will not happen. You need to give them time. They will learn to cook better only after many mistakes and accidents.
You are too on edge about succeeding
You are too restless about succeeding
Nervousness keeps you from attempting to your potential. Try not to fear committing errors. The best of individuals have committed a lot of errors in their professions. In any case, they didn't surrender, which is the reason achievement was theirs.
