Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Wanted to share another Netflix fave that I recently watched. Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a thoughtful documentary about 85-year-old Jiro Ono, who is considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant located in a Tokyo subway station. When asked how he runs a three Michelin Stars sushi restaurant, Jiro’s reply was “doing the same thing over and over, improving bit by bit”. He is a perfectionist.

To be completely honest with ya’ll, I feel I can be a lazy perfectionist at times, when I should just be a perfectionist and drop the lazy. I want to be a better designer, a better entrepreneur and a better person. Like his son, this is what Jiro has taught me…

Always look ahead and above yourself

Always try to improve on yourself

Always strive to elevate your craft

Onward we go.

    Loved this movie so much, but Japanese perfectionism scares me. Maybe because I grew up with it. There’s a balance that needs to be had between work and play. That being said, I still would eat the hell out of all of his sushi!
