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.
