Its also the reason many Japanese never really retire (in fact theres no word in Japanese that means retire in the sense it does in English): They remain active and work at what they enjoy, because theyve found a real purpose in lifethe happiness of always being busy.

Ikigai: Los secretos de Japón para una vida larga y feliz Reviews

  • Jenny Grant

    The last book I read on this topic was really inspiring and I couldn’t put it down.

    I was looking forward to reading this one and was woefully disappointed.

    It’s insipid, tedious and misses the point entirely.

  • KC

    This is a small. It powerful book filled with easy and obtainable goals. I've learned that I must achieve flow by giving up multi-tasking, slowing things down, living in the moment, and to breathe. Back to my sun salutations and meditations.

    Ik weet niet precies wat ik van dit boek vond.. Aan de ene kant vond ik het heel erg leuk en zaten er echt goede lessen in, maar aan de andere kant vond ik het soms enorm zweverig.. Maar misschien komt dat ook wel doordat ik helemaal niks heb met energiestromen door je lichaam enzo.

    Dat dorpje met zoveel 100-jarigen vond ik wel erg inspirerend! Mooie adviezen gaven die mensen ook in de interviews die in dit boek zijn weergegeven.

    Ik zal het boek hier even samenvatten, want het is nogal lang van stof.

    De enige hint in dit boek om je Ikigai te vinden, is door jezelf de vraag 'Waarom heb je nog geen zelfmoord gepleegd?' te stellen. Daar moet je bij optellen dat je gezond moet eten en voldoende moet bewegen, en in contact moet blijven met mensen om je heen, want dan word je ouder dan honderd.

    Graag gedaan.

    Ik kreeg deze als cadeautje van de lieve Luna van @leesdame en heb het boek binnen een dag uitgelezen. De rode draad van het boek is oud worden door bezig te blijven, maar het gaat veel verder dan dat. Waar ik nog het meest van kan leren is de les; concentreer je op één ding tegelijk.

    Er zijn echter heel veel manieren waarop je de lessen uit dit boek kunt toepassen. Luna schreef er al een hele mooie recensie over waaruit je precies goed op kunt maken hoe waardevol dit boek is. Zeker even lezen du

  • Vincent Van Grootel

    Enjoyed reading the book. It gave me some good, smaller insights. The kind you need to re-read once in a while. Towards the end some topics were discribed in too much detail and therefore they were not that interesting.

    I would recommed the book, it's a light and interesting read.

  • Chris Chester

    I kind of feel bad panning this book, because I think helping people find their ikigai -- or their purpose in life -- is a worthwhile goal.

    The problem is, I have to think that the author and his publisher know that this book doesn't come anywhere close to achieving that goal.

    Instead, this book is a jumbled mess. It borrows heavily from the work of others, from Victor Frankl to the guys studying flow states, slaps on a thin veneer of received wisdom from Japanese octogenarians and attempts to pas

    Beklentimi hiçbir açıdan karşılamayan bir kitap oldu Ikigai. İçerisinde birçoğumuzun bilmediği çok az şey barındırıyordu ki onlarda Japonlara has şeylerdi zaten. Diğer anlatılan her şey bir şekilde kulağımıza gelmiş olan, okuduğumuz ya da büyüklerimiz tarafından bize söylenen şeylerdi. Bu açıdan bana bir şeyler katan bir kitap olmadı.

    Kitap boyunca devamlı başka kitaplardan alıntılama, o kitaplardan verilen örnekler üzerinden ilerleme vardı. Ve bu beni bi yerden sonra rahatsız etti çünkü başka ki
