The Japanese have a word that means “leave it to me.” The word is omakase.

The beauty behind omakase is the theme of trust and creativity it offers when communicated. Mostly, you’ll find the word in sushi restaurants on the menu when the guest wants the chef to do his thing, his art, and his craft with freedom and fish in-lieu of ordering random selections a la carte.

Omakase is a two-way street. It’s an offer of ‘leave it to me’ and it’s a trusting acceptance of ‘I’ll leave it to you’.

However, you’re probably not going to be given a blank canvas until we’ve seen what you have painted before. Most omakase is earned.

Or put another way, you probably need to start dazzling before you’re asked to dazzle.
