What a terrific and holistic concept, love finding gems like this. Pursuing Ikigai instead of the mundane notion of a ‘career’ definitely sounds like what it should be about. I’ve seen so many friend become weighed down by the burden of working a job they don’t enjoy as they struggle to find meaning in paid work. It has such a deleterious effect on their curiosity, relationships and their ability to explore the breadth of their interests. Going to make Ikigai a central tenant in my mind as I trod on. Thanks for the introduction Thomas!
