I am not a fan of self-help books and trust me, this post isn’t about a change of heart brought about by this book!
Ikigai asks one to find a reason for being, the purpose of one’s life. Now I am sure that is good to hear and all, but how many of us can actually claim that we are in the jobs that are our reason for being! Most of us are in jobs that provide us with the basic necessities of life.
What I am trying to say is that one should find a purpose in whatever one is doing and give it 100%. Once you do that, you would be happy knowing the fact that I gave my 100% and what I now achieve is what I had worked for. I would rather be known as a diligent worker rather than a philosophical one.
What do you think?
