David Chang, famous chef and restauranteur, is a progression of accidents
I enjoy this interview with David Chang for a couple reasons. The biggest being he has recognized that his success isn't determined by something he has that everyone else doesn't. He doesn't have some god given gift that no one else will have.
He recognizes that his success has largely been a series of experiments and accidents. He just keeps putting himself out there. After all, if an opportunity or dream you have only has say a 1 in 20 chance of having some kind of success or impact, you better be putting 20 of those out there.
I also dig that he just doesn't give a shit that his shirt is incredibly wrinkled :)
Here's more David Chang interviews.
Dale Levitski was another recent example of someone we pointed out who has started succeeding again because he started putting himself out there again, willing to get knocked down.
