Ikigai

modern_ikigai

Ikigai [生き甲斐, pronounced (ikiɡai)] is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being.”

Ikigai is at the intersection of what you love, what the world needs, what you can be paid for, and what you are good at.

It occurred to me that much of our life experience is about finding a way to consistently experience ikigai.
