Life Value The Japanese have a secret that embodies the idea of happiness in living, and it is called Ikigai. Essentially, Ikigai, loosely translated to life value, or life worth, is a concept of living that the Japanese culture imbibes for decades.
Ikigai is illustrated in four overlapping circles, as in a Venn Diagram which talks about a synthesis of: What you love to do. What you are good at. What the world needs. What you can be paid for.
Make three small lists: Your values Things you like to do Things you are good at The cross-section or overlap of these three lists, is your Ikigai, something you should do for the rest of your life.
