Notes from "The Book of Ichigo Ichie"

My notes from "The Book of Ichigo Ichie: The Art of Making the Most of Every Moment, the Japanese Way" by Héctor García and Francesc Miralles

10 Principles of Ichigo Ichie:

  1. Don't postpone special moments.  Each opportunity presents itself only once.  If you don't embrace it, it's lost forever.

  2. Live as though this were going to happen only once in your life.

  3. Dwell into the present.

  4. Do something you've never done before.

  5. Practice zazen (seated meditation).

  6. Apply mindfulness to your five senses.

  7. Notice coincidences.

  8. Make every gathering a party.

  9. If you don't like what there is, make something different.

  10. Be a hunter of special moments.
