SSB: 3/20/22: What can making sushi teach me about business


“Jiro Dreams of Sushi.”

An enthralling portrait of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, the most famous sushi chef in Tokyo, whose award-winning eatery is a destination spot for sushi lovers everywhere.

What can we learn from Jiro Dreams of Sushi to help our business?

1)   Success Doesn’t Happen Overnight and It Requires a LOT of Hard Work

2)   Never Stop Learning and Growing in Your Craft
Even when he’s in his 80’s, Jiro is still thinking of new ways he can improve in his craft of making sushi.

3)   Simplify and Specialize
Jiro’s restaurant only serves sushi. No appetizers and no other options. They focus on and perfect the combination of fish and rice that their customers make reservations for months and years in advance.

4)   Love Your Work and Be Ready to Make Sacrifices
It is clear throughout the documentary how much Jiro loves his work (I mean the guy is still working in his 80’s and doesn’t want to retire!) and additionally, how many sacrifices he makes for his work.

To view the documentary it is available online as part of Amazon Prime.
