I attended a talk at SXSW and the chef Paul Qui had a great quote but I don't know how to spell the work in English (and Japanese) and could use some help. Here is the quote, with the best attempt at the word as I could manage.
I don't know what that dream project is and I am always in search of that dream project. In Japanese there's a term called shokaneen that means to be the master of something, but nobody is ever shokaneen you're always to trying to chase (that) to be a master in whatever that is. For me, whatever that dream is—and I don’t know what it is—I keep on chasing it.
