It’s easier to feel when we aren’t aligned with our Ikigai then to figure out how to find it. If you feel like you aren't doing what you should be doing, you probably aren't. It's just that simple.
The difficulty in finding our Ikigai comes from our inability to be mindful and present. In an age of constant stimulus, we want fast answers to complex problems. We would rather have an app tell us what to do with our lives. But finding your purpose, your Ikigai, is not that simple. It takes time to reflect and think.
Taking the time to figure out both what you are good at and what you are passionate about takes time. And it also takes patience. You will need the patience to explore, experiment, and test along the way.
Finding a practical way to apply your introspection can be even more complicated.
