Ten years ago I traveled to France on my first sourcing trip with Elsie Green. The French do not multi-task. They sit with their cafes, they enjoy their lunches and when they are engaged in a conversation they give their full attention. On that first trip, I asked for a cafe créme to-go in a bistro and the server simply said “non.” Perhaps it was my French, but I think it was more that she rejected my lifestyle choice. It was on that trip that I began to learn about the concept of doing one thing at a time, and doing it very well.
