IKIGAI IS NOT THE VENN DIAGRAM OF PURPOSE
Ikigai is a greatly misunderstood concept outside of Japan with people believing it to be a Venn diagram framework of doing something that you love, that you are good, that the world needs and that you can be paid for. This is NOT what ikigai means to the Japanese.
For the Japanese, ikigai gives individuals a sense of a life worth living. It is not related to success or economic status, but rather, is deeply personal and unique to each person, allowing him or her to establish a unique mental world in which he or she can feel at ease.
The desire for what the Japanese call ikigai is a universal human experience - the processes of cultivating one’s inner potential or that which makes one’s life significant.
Living in Japan taught me that we can approach life differently. We can have ikigai!
