Looking for ikigai worksheets?

First, you need to know that the Venn diagram below doesn't accurately depict ikigai - it is just a Western misinterpretation. Ikigai is not a sweet-spot were elements of your work life all come together for you to find purpose and financial success.  In fact Ikigai is not necessarily related to economic status or financial success.

Many Japanese find their ikigai outside of work, in their hobbies, relationships, and by living their values. Ikigai is personal; it reflects the inner self and allows one to express him or herself truly. Also, many Japanese find ikigai in more than one area of life.

While there really is no "Ikiagi Framework", we can use the Venn diagram framework to illustrate what ikigai means to the Japanese.

In the worksheets you'll find more detailed information on the ikigai concept, questions to contemplate and exercises to help you understand and find your own ikigai.
