What does it mean to become a “seasoned” professional?
I thought I understood, you know – you get “salty” like a dried up piece of gas station teriyaki beef jerky. Tough, tasty and long lasting…
And ya, sure – I’ll take that meaning too. But now, think of it again as an old seasoned cast iron skillet. I just got my first one, and it’s given me a new twist on the common phrase of being “seasoned”.
With repeated use and proper care, out of the daily grease a cast iron skillet will develop a deep and solid protective barrier which also happens to be fantastically non-stick. It’s pretty amazing to watch someone cook an egg on a cast iron skillet.
Translating that meaning to a seasoned professional:
With consistent diligent work and proper self care, out of the failures and success develops pride and deep self worth – which then prevents negativity and moments of doubt from sticking or lingering.
