Part of my methodology to help you get into flow and become neutrally buoyant is Ikigai.

Ikigai is found at the intersection where your passions and talents converge with the things that the world needs and is willing to pay for.

If you think about the 4 areas of the Ikigai as wheels on a shopping trolley, if they aren’t in balance, no matter how hard you push they just don’t want to go where you want them to!

Likewise, in life & business, if you don’t have balance, no matter how hard you work your progress can be slow & frustrating.

Your Personal Ikigai

Looking at your Personal Ikigai gives you a starting point from which you can focus your efforts.

Often, we try to change too much at once, don’t see results quickly & then revert back to our old habits. Rather than using a scatter gun approach you can use your Ikigai Score to target your efforts where you will see the greatest benefit.

What’s your Ikigai score?

Consider the following questions:

  • What are you truly passionate about?
    • How much am I living my passion?
  • What is the true WHY for your life?
    • How much am I living my purpose?
  • What are your unique skills and talents?
    • How much am I using my talents?
  • What you can be paid for?
    • To what extent am I paid my worth?

Give yourself a score out of 10 for each of these questions.

Question 1-10
How much am I living my passion?
How much am I living my purpose?
How much am I living my talents?
To what extent am I paid my worth?

Utilising your skills & talents to create Flow

Put simply, Flow can be thought of as the path of least resistance, where you add the most value and get the most done.

When we are in Flow our actions become effortless, we are in harmony with our natural talents, obstacles are easily overcome, actions are completed and our sense of enjoyment and productivity increase.

Getting into Flow is one of the critical elements which we will explore using the tools from the Entrepreneurs Institute.
