David Marks - The quest for Ikigai

My friend David Marks joins me on the Podcast today. From the factory floor of Holden Vehicles to living and working as an educator in Japan. Oh and a moment of talking about Port Adelaide's Premiership in 2004.

Ikigai (pronounced ee-key-guy) is a wonderful Japanese concept that essentially means “a reason for being.” It's made from two Japanese words: iki, meaning “life” and kai, meaning “effect, result, worth or benefit.” Combined: “a reason for living.”

I'm on a quest!

A quest to find out how to bring together my passions, my responsibilities and my skills. How can we involve ourselves in meaningful work that also provides for ourselves and our families?

I've been stuck believing that I need to do what other people want me to do, and what other people think I'm good at. But it's been wearing me down. I want to discover and tell stories. I want to discover and tell my own story. I want to be encouraged and challenged by other peoples stories.

Join me as I speak to many people about how they make it work in their own lives and discover maybe just what my next step can look like.
