☝️1 Insight

A key takeaway from the prompt.

You often hear the saying “Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life”. If you solely did this, with no appreciation for the other parts of your Ikigai, you’d have total delight and fullness from life, but no wealth. On the flip side, if you just did what made you money, you’d be comfortable, but there’d be a gaping hole of emptiness.

Finding the intersection of your passion, mission, profession and vocation is critical to uncover your reason for being—and letting it be your driving force to get out of bed with fervour each morning.

☝️1 Action

Take the prompt one step further.

Take time to personalise this prompt to get the best results. Edit the sections:

  • My skills

  • My hobbies and interests

  • My work experience

ChatGPT will help you probe further by asking follow on questions. This will enable the language model (ChatGPT) to gain sufficient context in order to provide the most accurate Ikigai suggestions. If you haven’t undertaken this exercise before, I hope it provides a clear path towards a fulfilling life.

Even if these prompts aren’t relevant to you right now, let them serve as a benchmark of inspiration for you to turn back to when the time is right.

See you Sunday,
