#GoalChats on Mission & Purpose with Tim Tamashiro, “How to Ikigai”

I was thrilled to have fellow Mango author Tim Tamashiro, How to Ikigai, join me for #GoalChatLive to talk about Mission and Purpose. It was the perfect #NewYearNewYou topic to start #Start2021Now.

Ikigai, which comes from Okinawa, Japan, is an ancient philosophy for life’s purpose. Tim’s Ikigai is to delight. Mine is to motivate!

Ikigai has four simple directions:

1. Do what you love
2. Do what you’re good at
3. Do what the world needs
4. Do what you can be rewarded for

This is very much in alignment with the D in The D*E*B Method: Determine Your Mission. Tim and I had a great conversation about  the value of mission and purpose, the necessity of exploration and commitment to yourself, and so much more. Tim talked about his “Ikigap” year, shared four stages of adulthood – Athlete, Warrior, Senator, Spirit – and even delighted us with a song.
