Jiro Dreams of Sushi


Heralded as a Japanese national treasure, Jiro Ono, is the first sushi chef in the world to receive three Michelin stars, and is the proprietor of the world’s most celebrated sushi restaurant, Tokyo’s Sukiyabashi Jiro.

The 19-piece “Chef’s Recommended Special Course,” cost ¥30,000 (SGD385).

Here’s the trailer of David Gelb’s feature-length documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.”

Society today likes to put all of us in boxes, telling us how we ought to live our lives or what route or career we should pursue once we graduate from school. You either become a doctor, lawyer or banker, else you’re a failure, so they say. If that’s the case, then society will have so many “failures” or useless people.

Recently, I heard someone share that if we were to play in all three of the following ares, that we will become one of the best or one of the few or one of the first in our domain.

1. Above average ability (Discover something that you can do well)
2. Commitment and hard work (Put in the effort and be committed)
3. Creativity (Think of an innovative way to do it)

It is my belief that people should start discovering their above average ability, put in the time and effort to doing it and think of innovative or creative ways to do it. It is then that we will see people achieving their true potential and becoming the person that they are meant to be.

Here at The Future School, we hope to play a part in bringing out the potential in people.
