Vegetierst du noch durch die Gegend oder hast du die 4 Pfeiler schon zusammengeführt?
What I am passionate about is transparency, truth, and helping people live up to their highest potential.
My company is simply the vehicle through which I can take these passions, apply them to the things that the world needs, and make a profit in the process.
In other words, BodeTree is my Ikigai.
A transformative realization
This is not to say that work is the most important thing in my life. That honor falls to my faith and my family. While I’m far from perfect, I strive to make sure that they are the center of my life.
However, there’s a difference between the things that are important in your life and your life’s work.
Ikigai is about finding joy, fulfillment, and balance in the daily routine of life.
It’s all too easy to fall victim to siloed thinking, that our job, family, passions, and desires are all separate and unrelated aspects of our lives.
The fundamental truth of Ikigai is that nothing is siloed. Everything is connected.
This realization has changed my outlook for the better. Whether you call it Ikigai or Enlightened Entrepreneurship, the truth remains. It is possible to be true to your passions, live a life of consequence, and still use business as a medium of expression.
At the intersection of all of this are feelings of peace and lasting happiness that can sustain us throughout our entire lives.
