Complete the following activities:


Task 3.1 Personal and professional development




Complete the IKIGAI activity.


“Your ikigai is at the intersection of what you are good at and what you love doing,” says Hector Garcia, the co-author of Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life.


Ikigai is seen as the convergence of four primary elements:

  • What you love (your passion)
  • What the world needs (your mission)
  • What you are good at (your vocation)
  • What you can get paid for (your profession)

Further Reading:

STEP 1- What you love (your passion)



STEP 2 – What you are good at (your vocation)







STEP 4 – What the world needs (your mission)




STEP 3What you can get paid for (your profession)



Primary elements Reflection IKIGAI


STEP 1- What you love (your passion)


Write down the things you’re really passionate about or things that you love; this can be everything from computers to playing with your dog – the more, the better.

Read Novels, Motivational stories, spending value time with the family, traveling (Ziesche, et al., 2020). Hopefully, now you will have some areas where all 4 areas overlap and this will help you to determine your direction/purpose in life.

That is your IKIGAI.


Review the outcome of your reflection in all 4 areas and evaluate what your IKIGAI is.


Your IKIGAI <Add>


STEP 2 – What you are good at (your vocation)


Write the things you’re good at. Some of these things might overlap with the previous notes and that’s great just write them again.

Handling situations, Time Management, and identifying skills.
STEP 3- What you can get paid for (your profession)


This is specific to you and your skills. So in the previous category, you might have said that you can fit 40 almonds in your mouth, but unless someone will pay you good money for this skill, it doesn’t belong in this category.

I can be paid for my Managerial skills, Time management, and scheduling skills (Ziesche, et al., 2020).


STEP 4 – What the world needs (your mission)


Write down any ways in which you could benefit the world.

The world needs literacy and it can only be provided through education,

So, I would like to provide free education to the children who are not self-capable in terms of money.
