Finding Ikigai during a Pandemic

2020 has been a challenging year forcing most people to adapt to new realities. What makes me optimistic is seeing that people are capable not only to adapt but to thrive on change.

I would like to share with you a particularly inspiring Japanese concept that despite its rather exotic-sounding name (Ikigai) is relatively straightforward to implement in our daily lives.


a Japanese term that roughly translates to “reason for being.”

My sister back in Spain recently had a self-development book delivered to my home, that she believed could provide me with a better perspective on how to do my work. 

Everyone, according to Japanese culture, has an ikigai and finding yours can lead to a happier, more fulfilled life.
