Why should you even bother?


Know that idea you have for that thing you want to do?

Some of your nearest and dearest have been telling you to get to it for years.

There are other well intending people who have been less encouraging.

Then there’s that voice inside your head that says

“There’s nothing new about your idea and other people have already done it way better than you will”

Yeah… that voice.

To that voice and to the well intending people who have been less encouraging I have this to say;


I’m sorry vegans.  Please don’t feel upset or alienated.  Just making a point.

For those of you who have never had a cheeseburger, here is what Wikipedia has to say:

A hamburger (or cheeseburger when served with a slice of cheese) is a sandwich consisting of one or more cooked patties of ground meat, usually beef, placed inside a sliced bread roll or bun. Hamburgers may be cooked in a variety of ways, including pan-frying, barbecuing, and flame-broiling. Hamburgers are often served with cheese, lettuce, tomato, bacon, onion, pickles, and condiments such as mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, and chiles.[1]It's reported that Americans consume nearly 50 billion burgers per year.

Billions…  Not a type-o.

There are Wendy’s people and there are Burger King people…

White Castle and Crystal…

Your mom’s burger and the one that The Barefoot Contessa makes where she sneaks a big knob of butter in the middle. (makes a ball, sticks her thumb in, makes a hole, inserts butter, closes hole, grills without pressing down, calls an ambulance for her delighted guests)

You’re welcome…

A cheeseburger is a thing. You know one when you see one and if you’re a carnivore you most likely have a strong opinion about where to get the best.

The burger was invented in 1900 at Louis' Lunch in New Haven, Connecticut.  (yes… this fact is debated but let’s go with it for now)

Clearly it was a hit and most likely you’ve never had a Louis Lunch Burger (I have and it was amazing)

Most likely you've never had a Louis' Lunch burger but you have had a burger.

If you are reading this in the USA, you've most likely had countless burgers from a wide range of places.

You’ve known that joy because people didn’t look at Louis' Lunch and say there’s no point in me making burgers because they already did it.

Someone walked in a said this is good but what if we did this to it.

I’m so glad they did!

The world is ready for your burger and by burger I mean your book, business, poem, service, song, painting, workshop and idea.

The part of you that says “Why bother” must realize that yes we have eaten burgers, but we haven’t eaten YOUR burger.
