Finding Your Ikigai

This came to my attention a few months ago and until then I hadn’t heard of it, but it makes perfect sense.


Ikigai is the Japanese secret to a long and happy life and it’s about finding your fire, – a reason to jump out of bed each morning.

There are four things you need to find out:

What you love

What the world needs

What you are good at

What you can get paid for

and in there is also passion, mission, vocation and profession.


Have you found yours?
