Perfection, or chasing a unicorn?

I always thought i'll be a corporate slave upon graduation,
i even worked for a short stint in the corporate world, 
i didn't hate it, neither do i like it, 
but my life was draining away, and the flames of my passion were diminishing. 

I thought it was a sign of weakness, 
that i could not balance between 2 jobs, 
so i hung on and my days dragged into months. 
I'm glad that i later decided to focus on my dreams and start living a life that i want (: 

I recently watched this very inspirational documentary onboard SQ, 
called "Jiro Dreams of Sushi". 
Jiro's a master sushi chef, 85 years old, and has been making sushi for the past 75 years. 
He's easily the best sushi chef in the whole of Japan, 
yet he still thinks there's more to improve. 
Ramping up 3 Michellin Star, his unassuming restaurant tucked in a corner of Tokyo 
only serves 10 customers each time, 
reservations have to be made 1 month beforehand, 
and his menu only contains sushi. 
No appetizers, nothing fancy, just good'o traditional sushi made to perfection. 

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is now showing in Singapore
Here's the official trailer 

Even Anthony Bourdain was smittened,
but then again what do these ang mohs know about sushi.. haha

Everyone should watch it, to rediscover what true perseverance, 
hardwork, dedication, and perfection is about.
Jiro does the same thing, day in day out, 
yet he does not get bored of it, he simply find ways to improve it. 
And most of all, sushi-making is his passion, 
he never felt like he has worked a day in his life. 

Jiro's my newfound idol. 
I may not have his drive for perfection,
but i think one way to go about it is to really focus on what i'm doing, 
and hammer on them, constantly looking for ways to improve my performance. 
For me, it's not about the destination, but the journey towards perfection that really matters. 
At least for now, i'm enjoying my chase for the unicorn, 
and i'm grateful that i know what i really want in life (:
