I'm very intrigued by Ikigai, a Japanese concept referring to something that gives a person a sense of purpose; a reason for living.
Essentially, it's finding the intersection between:
- what you love doing;
- what you are great at;
- what the world needs;
- and what you can get paid for.
I used the above as journaling prompts and it ended up being a very interesting exercise, which I highly recommend.
