    All Things Ikigai with Kei Tsuda

    All Things Ikigai with Kei Tsuda

    When the path from astronaut dreams to IT expertise took an unexpected turn, Ikigai scholar Kei Tsuda found himself at the crossroads of purpose and profession. This episode unveils Kei's transformative journey, revealing how the pursuit of Ikigai can shape our lives. 

    Our discussion traverses the cultural landscapes of East and West, exploring how the Western craving for structured models like the Venn diagram clashes with the fluid, intrinsic understanding of Ikigai in Japan. Kei, initially a skeptic, now uses the Ikigai framework as a compass, guiding individuals towards a life rich with fulfilment.

    Embark on a journey through the multifaceted world of Ikigai, where alignment with personal values is the cornerstone of true satisfaction. Through the metaphor of constructing LEGO sets, we illustrate the joy and individuality inherent in the pursuit of life's meaning. 

    Does financial gain play a role in the quest for Ikigai? We navigate this question with insights from Dr. Yasuhiro Kotera and Mieko Kamiya, painting a broader picture of the many dimensions of joy and fulfilment. 

    Whether it's the serenity of solitary creation or the exuberance of collaborative innovation, this episode offers a fresh perspective on finding one's purpose and the spectrum of feelings that signal you're on the right path.

    Have you ever ticked off a dream  of goal from a bucket list? On this episode The Bucket List Guy, Trav Bell, joins us for a transformative discussion on living life with meaning and intention. 

    This episode isn't just about dreaming; it's a deep dive into celebrating our past wins with a reverse bucket list, and how acknowledging our achievements can launch us toward even greater ones.

    Trav also lays down The Bucketlist Challenge, calling on listnerers to put pen to paper and make your life ambitions known—for a bit of friendly accountability. 

    Listen in as we discuss the power of setting and sharing your goals, and how doing so can help you feel more ikigai in your life.
