Jiro’s Secret Of Success

Posted by

Apparently success is going to be an ongoing series…

Every so often I have a look at Daniel Pink‘s blog.  A couple of weeks ago I was rewarded by a story about an 85 year old Japanese sushi master, Jiro Ono.  By all accounts he is the greatest sushi chef in the world, and his 10 seat ‘restaurant’ has been rewarded with three Michelin stars (which by definition means that it is worth travelling to that country only to eat at the restaurant).  Pink reviews a documentary made about Jiro describing it as ‘the best 82 minute film on mastery I have ever seen’.  Now I can’t judge whether it is indeed the best such film Daniel Pink has ever seen, but I can now say it is the best I have ever seen.  The movie is called ‘Jiro Dreams Of Sushi‘ and it is a wonderful examination of the pursuit of excellence, and a great film about sushi.

My highlight…

Once you decide on your occupation…
you must immerse yourself in your work.
You have to fall in love with your work.
Never complain about your job.
You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill.
That’s the secret of success…
and is the key to being regarded honorably.
