MOJO or Nojo: Where Are You Living? Japanese translation by Yujiro Akimoto MOJO is the moment when we feel we’re “on a roll”, firing on all cylinders, and everyone around us senses it. When we’re moving forward, making progress, achieving goals, clearing hurdles, passing the competition—and doing so with increasing ease. Sports people call this being “in the zone”; others describe it as “flow”.MOJO is that positive spirit toward what we are doing now that starts from the inside and radiates to the outside. MOJO plays a vital role in our pursuit of happiness and meaning because it is about achieving two simple goals: loving what we do and showing it. MOJO becomes apparent when the positive feelings toward what we are doing come from inside us and are evident for others to see. In other words, it is the moment when there’s no gap between the positive way we perceive ourselves—what we are doing—and how we are perceived by others.
