A Master Brewer has to be able to identify the potential in every batch of barley, water, hops, and yeast. He knows how much is needed, the time it will take to extract that potential, and just when add the right ingredients to make a quality product, and through it all he has to believe that at the end of the process will be something great. In the same way, It takes a lifetime of experiences, lessons, mistakes, successes, and internal drive and ability for a person to reach their potential. Too often we fail to bring these ingredients together in the right time, in the right order, with the believe that the result of these experiences will be something great. Too often we leave our potential untapped.
