The Lesson & Story:
GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
I always had a hunger for adventure and trying new things, except when it came to eating sea food. I got sick from eating sea food once when I was young, and claimed for over 10 years that I was “allergic” to almost anything from the sea.
One day, when traveling in Tokyo with my father, we got up at 4:00 A.M. to experience the Tsukiji Market, the world’s biggest wholesale fish market. Here, we observed caviar, 300kg tuna, sea weed, controversial whale species, and crabs being unloaded, transported, iced, sliced, and packed by thousands of fishermen. These people were serious about their sea food and offering us all sorts of different tastes. This was a rare opportunity so I swallowed my pride
and tried all sorts of fresh clams, snails, and fish parts.
Today sushi is my favorite food.
