Found this graphic exploring Twitter this morning

A very clever Venn diagram displaying the importance of balance in life. Each of the four pieces bring value:
- What you love
- What the world needs
- What you can be paid for
- What you are good at
We find our best life, with the most satisfaction, where all these pieces intersect. And that neglecting any of these areas brings consequences.
Ikigai is a new concept to me. One that bears exploring further. I appreciate the way it helps define key life management concepts:
- Passion: what you love insects with what you’re good at
- Vocation: what you can get paid for intersects with what the world needs
- Mission: what the world needs with what you love
- Profession: what you’re good at with what you can get paid for
I appreciate the reminder: look beyond my habits, my reflexes, and seek greater understanding. By dedicating energy to areas out of balance, I bring greater satisfaction, balance, and relive stress. That’s something I forget.
