One small positive thought in the mornings can change our whole day, and impact those around us!
Combining the Japanese words iki, meaning life and gai, meaning value or worth, ikigai is essentially about finding your purpose in life.
Try playing different roles focusing on passion, mission, profession and vocation. Helps find your sweet spot and what you want to focus in life.
What I have come to realize is that –
- Making the switch takes a lot of time (years), effort, skills and planning
- Focusing on your primary area that interests you most and having a set of hobbies / secondary activities to satisfy the other areas of interest helps in switching from one to another easily over years
- First priority is life is NEVER the same over years – we and our needs tend to evolve!
