Ikigai Concept: Discover Your Purpose
Ikigai (生き甲斐) is a Japanese concept meaning “a reason for being” or “purpose”.
This insightful and engaging talk focuses on the journey that each individual may need to go through to discover our own “ikigai”, which means “one’s purpose” or the source of value in one’s life or the things that make one’s life worthwhile. It examines the inter-connectedness of several aspects of one’s life: What we are good at doing, what we love doing, what we get paid to do, and what ‘our’ world needs. Gaining a deeper understanding of “one’s purpose” is valuable in discovering or searching for the kind of work — either what we are currently doing or what we aspire to do in our next role — that gives it much more meaning and fulfillment.
Come and learn what your “ikigai” is!
