This is the part where I live tweet my #uxrconf talk (thx for the idea @albanvillamil @uxrcollective).

1/ We all have those phases in our lives where we’re not sure what we’re doing with our career. I’m going to talk about a concept called #Ikigai that can help navigate this.
2/ Even if you know what you’re doing, Ikigai is that inner compass that can give you clarity/courage when things get hard.

e.g. As researcher, we have to speak truth to power. Drawing attention to problematic findings can be tricky depending on the clients/leadership.

3/ And, Ikigai helps us have energy for things that we may be struggling with or see as less fun.

e.g. maybe we’re learning a new skill/subject that we’re not good at yet and dragging our feet. Ikigai can helps us sustain momentum and find joy in the learning journey.
