The following synopsis is from Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles book of Ikigai – Japanese secret to a long and happy life.
Definition of IKIGAI – According To Wikipedia
“A Japanese Concept That Means A Reason For Being.”
For Several years now, I have been reading and learning more about IKIGAI, especially relating to Career Plans and Future Job Options. I have been hearing about Upskilling, Reskilling, Lifelong Learning and Development and a new trend for how employers are adapting to changes in the workplace. Remote jobs or work from home jobs have been discussed, and several of the technology companies have been testing the remote employee idea out within their own companies. 2020 not only brought changes to the work place and education, but to Mentoring and how it is being accomplished.
Many of us are realizing the value of recognizing our special talents and gifts in life, and beginning to appreciate them with different perspectives.
Mentoring and Working With Others Can Be Part Of Using Our Talents and Skills at any age and at any Career Point in our lives.
IKIGAI offers us A New Perspective of Seeing, Appreciating, Respecting and Adapting These Gifts in 2021
Finding Our Reason For Being At Any Age
Mentoring and Career Planning In 2021 and for the future.
