An Evening With The World's Greatest Sushi Chef

Jiro Ono's Art of Self-Critique

ALWAYS LOOK AHEAD & ABOVE YOURSELF. ALWAYS TRY TO IMPROVE YOURSELF. ALWAYS STRIVE TO ELEVATE YOUR CRAFT.

○ ○ ○In a world where even churches get so big they speak of “processing” members and

so-called business men refer to human beings as “account”/“accounts”, Jirō Ono's

sushi restaurant is the largest of them all. Not by size but by character & essence

that is readily verifiable. And that, is what I love about the man widely regarded

as the 'World's Greatest' sushi chef & “a National Treasure” of Japan. From his

small sushi restaurant in a Tokyo office building basement, Sukiyabashi Jiro

makes stupendous impact one human experience at a time with its 10-seat,

reserve-months-in-advance, sushi-only restaurant thus, illuminating my

two favorite mantras: Quality, People, Performance, —Job, Done &

Facta non verba. In a world of gimmickry, where substance often

is derided in favor of noise & shallowness, the authentic artist,

far from being “intimidated” by his comically taciturn gaze, is

encouraged by his standard of excellence & self-discipline

as I'm sure all authentic doers are/will be by the movie

above. Disowned, if you like, with the words “You have

no home to come back to” at age 9, he exemplifies 5

unmistakable traits/transferable skills of a great

chef namely: Commitment to high performance

& professionalism; Unwavering curiosity in

the pursuit of excellence; Cleanliness, Pure

passion & Impatience that only purpose-

driven individuals appreciate. I almost

felt a pinch, and immediately sat up

when I heard the words “It takes

years of experience to develop

your intuition” because the

most frustrating skill to

teach one used to low

standards is Obser

vational Skills &

Meticulousness

without which

Quality fails
