COFFEE MOMENTS AND THE ART OF TAKING FIRST STEP

hat you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.Buddha

First step

I am sure, everybody experiences moments during which we are unsure, if we are ready to start an activity or not.  It could be – for example – our wish to try out a new coffee brewing method. In doing so, we could be wondering whether or not we have all the necessary information and skills to accomplish the task successfully.  However, during such moments, our inferior thoughts create a mental blockade.

Thoughts have energy. Make sure your thoughts are positive and powerful. Anonymous

A good advice is to replace these inferior thoughts with positive feelings, thoughts or actions! After all, feelings, thoughts and actions are all interconnected.

Therefore, let’s force ourselves to just act with a positive mindset. Let’s not overthink by trying to come up with the “right” way of doing it. Let’s not get overwhelmed and let’s be curious about what will happen 😊.

The Law of the First Step

You can use for Hario Drippers

The law of the first step is quite simple. We will never achieve what is possible without taking the first step.

According to the Thought Entrepreneur and Leadership Expert Jon Mertz, the Law of the First Step welcomes the following:

  1. Take the first step with confidence and curiosity
  2. Keep taking the first steps to find the right path and insights
  3. Focus on your lane, avoiding over-comparison to what others are doing
  4. Remember your purpose is bigger than just you
  5. Prepare for the zig-zags, caring for self while learning and pursuing
  6. Recognize the ruts and step up and out to keep your work fresh in learning and spirit

COFFEE BREWING BASICS

Steps before you start:

  • Prepare all equipment that you need.
  • Check to see if the grinder is clean.
  • Start preparing water. If you are in countries where you can use Tap water and it tastes good, I always recommend letting the water run for a few seconds before using it.

INTERESTING IDEA FROM CHIANG MAI

Coffee stall in Chiang Mai

The idea comes originally from Vietnam.

There, local people offer freshly prepared tea on markets for a donation. The tea-maker is brewing the tea. The guests sit on small chairs around tea maker while holding tea-cups in their hands. When the tea is ready, the tea-maker will offer the tea to the people, who sit around him. Once the guests had enough tea, they will give their donations into a box.
