57 – Pick the Full or Half Ikigai

by Jill

What is Ikigai? Ikigai has four simple directions to follow:

  • Do what you love
  • Do what you’re good at
  • Do what the world needs
  • Do what you can be rewarded for.

Choose Change – The first step is to choose to change and that will bring you joy as it starts to gel.

How to Get Over Fear – Get over the fear of success, failure and what others will think by doing the work.

What Interests You And You Have Skills?  – Use your childhood, past successes, feedback from others and research to find the thing you are good at and what you love.

The Half Ikigai – Start with your love and your talent.

The Ikigai Gap Year – Take a year to fully dive into your ikigai. Save the money and arrange your life to do this deep dive if you can.

The Full Ikigai – Figure out how to fit your love and talent with the needs of the world. Figure out how to get rewarded for it.

Start with Small Experiments – Run small experiments to get there.


Identify a one activity you do that you like, you are good at and you think the world might reward you for the effort. What is one step you can take that would allow you to try it out?
