We hear this time and time again. If you are multi-talented, the idea of choosing something can be be even scarier than the idea of becoming an entrepreneur. Usually the problem is that you are good at too many things.

One tool that is incredibly useful in finding your calling is the Japanese art of Ikigai. Ikigai is defined as “a reason for being.” The Japanese believe there is one thing that each person is uniquely good at. The Japanese believe our passion should also be our vocation. Because of this, they don’t retire. They do what they love, even into old age. They believe that this is the secret to a long, happy life full of purpose.

Luckily, there is a system for finding your Ikigai, and we’ve put together a free worksheet for you to download here.

For more reading, we recommend the book Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life by Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles.
