I was in Philadelphia, and everyone said, OH YOU HAVE TO GET A CHEESE STEAK. It is what they are known for, and a Philly cheese steak is like no other.

Here is what I got.
- A Bun
- Some chopped steak
- Some cheese
- Some grease
It was good, but it tasted just like the one I could make in my kitchen. There was nothing that made me go “OH WOW.” When I’m in Chicago and I get a pizza from Geordono’s pizza. That is something I can’t get in Akron, Ohio. But this sandwich? Was nothing that made me want to tell my friends and when I got home, as expected, the scale had gone up.

The 10 minute rule takes a new direction. Do this thing you are dreading for 10 minutes, then look back and evaluate it. Most of the time you will find the thing you are dreading so much is not that bad.
