Marble Surface


by Francesc Miralles i Contijoch & Héctor García


  • Ikigai is a Japanese concept that combines the terms iki, meaning “alive” or “life,” and gai, meaning “benefit” or “worth.” When combined, these terms mean that which gives your life worth, meaning, or purpose.

My opinion:

  • This book is beautiful and it cemented my belief in the individual "meaning" or "Why?" even more.

Favorite quote:

“Once you find it [your Ikigai], it is only a matter of having the courage and making the effort to stay on the right path.

In order to do this, you have to accept that the world is imperfect, but that it is still full of opportunities for growth and achievement.

Flow is mysterious. ... the more you train it, the more you will flow, and the closer you will be to your ikigai."
Francesc Miralles i Contijoch & Héctor García

Key takeaways:

  • Be aware - when are you "flowing"? This are subtle hints to your own Ikigai.
