Jiro is a master sushi chef. He has dedicated his life to his craft. I would guess that many writers would focus on Jiro’s career success His restaurant was awarded the highest Michelin rating. The minimal charge for a single diner is $300. He is widely known as the world’s greatest sushi chef. I want to focus on Jiro’s career happiness.
Jiro derives great internal satisfaction from his work. He “dreams of sushi” because he is immersed in honing his craft even further. He feels purposeful at work. He derives meaning from providing the highest quality dining experience to his customers. Work makes him happy as he does not like holidays when he can’t work. (Ok, he might be a bit unbalanced!)
Lately, as I have worked with many Connecticut job seekers who are wondering how to get a better job, I find myself advising them to become an expert. Expertise in a marketable skill makes one invincible. Just watch Jiro.
