Meráki μεράκι (Greek)

Meraki is the essence of yourself that is put into your work. It is doing something with soul, creativity, or love.

Your essence is forever connected to whatever it is you have done. This is often referred to as our passion, but the Greek word meraki means more than that.

Meraki is when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.

It is often used to describe cooking or preparing a meal, but it can also mean arranging a room, choosing decorations, or setting an elegant table.
