The other day I saw Jiro Dreams of Sushi. I loved the movie but not just because of the delicious sushi featured in the film. The movie, in reality, wasn't about sushi at all. Its about greatness and genius. Even though he was told that the art of sushi was as advanced as it ever would be, he decided to dedicate his life to sushi. Everyday he strove to make better sushi than before. My favorite quote from the movie is when Jiro told his secret to success, "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." One of his sons mentioned what Jiro taught "Always look ahead and above yourself. Always try to improve on yourself. Always strive to elevate your craft. That's what he taught me." Jiro did not only work to become a master of sushi he also took time to teach others. He taught his sons his skill and many other apprentices. That way his art will live on after him, creating a legacy. I like Jiro's approach to life. Don't complain. Whatever you do try to be the best at it, fall in love with it. Constantly challenge yourself, take pride in your work. So, I hope everyone gets to watch it.
