Ikigai 101:

1. Discover & Balance: Unearth what you love, what the world needs, what you're good at, and what you can be paid for. Seek the intersection - that's your Ikigai.

2. Embrace the Flow: Enjoy the process and find satisfaction in achieving a state of flow in your passion and work.

3. Small Steps: Start with little changes and gradually align your life with your Ikigai. Every small step counts.

4. Harmony & Joy: Ikigai is about finding a sustainable balance in life. Appreciate the joy in small things that contributes to overall satisfaction.

5. Break Barriers: Release societal and self-imposed limitations. Be open to exploring and defining your true Ikigai.

These condensed insights are from the book "Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life" by Héctor García and Francesc Miralles, shared by Omar's Desk. Apply these principles to find your purpose and joy in life.

P.S: Ikigai is a Japanese concept combining the words 'iki' (life) and 'gai' (value or worth). It's often translated as 'reason for being'.

P.P.S: Remember, "Your Ikigai is the reason you get up in the morning."
