Reason for Being
The Japanese have a great word: ikigai. It has no direct translation into English, but roughly means your level of happiness in life, or your ‘reason for being’.
Many people spend their lifetime working out their reason for being.
But understanding where you sit on the chart above might help you realise what areas you need to work on to get there. Here are the questions to ask yourself.
- Are you in a role that you love?
- Are you building things that the world needs?
- Are you doing what you are good at?
- Are you in a role that pays you fairly?
