One of the things that make us unique is the diverse range of passions we all have. But how do we do more of what we love?
Our favourite framework is inspired by the residents of the island of Okinawa. These islands at the southern end of Japan have historically been known for longevity, once called the land of immortals. Okinawans have less cancer, heart disease and dementia than Western nations, and women there live longer than any women on the planet.
You may have heard that the reason for their health and longevity is due to their diet however Okinawans also have a strong sense of purpose in life, a driving force that the Japanese call ‘ikigai’.
Use the framework below as a way of collecting data. Then look for the connections between the circles to see how you can do more of what you love, and even get paid for it!
