A Reason for Being

Ikigai is a Japanese concept meaning “A Reason for Being”. It defines how these four work conditions can bring meaning to our lives:

  1. Doing what we are good at.
  2. Doing what we love.
  3. Doing what the world needs.
  4. Doing what we can be paid for.

According to this concept, working on something that has all four conditions will give a person ikigai: a Reason for Being.

  • Good at + Love it = Passion
  • Love it + the world Needs it = Mission
  • The world Needs it + get Paid = Vocation
  • Get Paid + Good at = Profession
