Show Notes

Do you ever find yourself questioning your career choices?  Wondering if there is more to work than just a paycheck?  You're not alone.  Many people are seeking to find their true purpose to have a fulfilling life, both personally and professionally.

In our latest episode, we sit down with Christy Rosen, a career coach and founder of Ikigai Career Coaching, to discuss the power of incorporating the Japanese concept of Ikigai into your career development journey and how it can guide us towards a meaningful and purpose-driven career.

At the core of ikigai is the idea of finding purpose and fulfillment by aligning four key elements: what you love, what you are good at, what the world needs, and what you can be paid for.  These elements create an intersection where your passions, skills, and potential for contribution come together.

The pursuit of Ikigai brings peace, direction, joy, and a purpose-filled life, Christy explained.  By understanding and incorporating these aspects of oneself, individuals can find their place in the world and discover their ideal job.

Here are the key takeaways from this episode:

  • Understand the Ikigai philosophy: Discover how Ikigai combines passion, mission, vocation, and profession to help you define and achieve your career objectives.
