My Daily Thoughts



Ikigai is the action we take in pursuit of happiness.
Yukari Mitsuhashi

Ikigai is a Japanese framework for living a fulfilling life.

The Ikigai framework identifies a fulfilling life as the intersection between what you love, what you are good at, what the world needs, and what the world will pay for.

This framework resonates with me because it focuses on the value you create for the world.

As a parent, I would tell my kids to focus on what you love and what you are good at early in life, and then focus on what the world needs and will pay for later in life.

The core of Ikigai is value. When you are creating value that you are good at and love doing that the world wants and is willing to pay for, you will have a fulfilling meaningful life.
