A friend mentioned
ikigai in passing to me:
graph TD A[Brie] A -->B[what do I love to do?] A -->C[what am I great at doing?]
graph TD F[the world] G[what does the world need?] H[what is the world willing to pay for?] F-->G F-->H
When I find something that I love to do and that I am great at doing: that is my passion. Passion is not enough for ikigai: it's a very self-centered approach: the universe should just provide for me to do what I want?
- If we go towards what I love and what the world needs purely: we find mission.
- If we go towards what I'm great at and the world will pay for: we have profession.
- A vocation is something that the world will pay for and that you can do.
Finding your ikigai means finding the sweet spot, finding something that checks all of these boxes:
- I love to do it.
- I am great at doing it.
- The world needs it.
- The world is willing to pay for it.
This is a process of finding something that fulfills my desires and solves the world's needs.
- Watch this two minute 36 second video: Nobody cares about your passion: find your ikigai.
- The book that my friend recommended is Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life
