Okinawa is an island in Japan with the world’s longest-living people. You will find more centenarians here than any other part of the world. The residents claim they’ve been able to live this long because they have found their own Ikigai – it’s the place where their strongest abilities, desires, profession and societal obligations meet.
Out of the other ways the book describes Ikigai, we found ‘a reason to jump out of bed every morning’ a unanimous favourite. To elaborate, the happiness of always being busy, whether its washing dishes, feeding your toddler or wrapping up a presentation, is where the germ of Ikigai is born. Those who live by it are not too concerned about the final outcome, it’s the process that seduces them. The state of being so far immersed in the flow of activity that the present is all that you think about; the past and future have no room. Living in the task – consciously – the purpose is all right there.
So how can you find your Ikigai? If you are here, reading this, you are most certainly the perfect candidate for something. As cliche as this may sound, you haven’t been sent down here without a purpose. This book will help you work out what your Ikigai really is and then equip you to change your life. Give it a go!
