What 750+ Readers are Saying:
“I stumbled upon Kyle’s work by Googling ‘Ikigai’ after a friend told me about the much inferior 1.0 version. Kyle’s ability to take this existing model, incorporate wisdom from disparate sources, and produce a much clearer and comprehensive structure for how to prioritize one’s life in his 2.0 version has given me immense clarity in this current chapter of life.” — Grant J.
“I’m so glad I found your website today. It’s changing my life rapidly. I hit a massive crisis over the last few months … As I’m reading through your wonderful eBook, I have been generating the Ikigai 2.0 for myself.” — Dale A.

“I’m finishing the eBook, and I love it … Thank you, it has helped me a lot. I like your views on money. I think today’s society, especially on social media, is totally obsessed with it which keeps them from really having a full life. You can earn money, but it will not give you completeness and happiness. There is no one talking about this, only you.” — Victor M.

About the Ikigai 2.0 eBook:
Ikigai. Have you heard the word? Maybe you’ve seen the four-circle diagram above (hint: it’s not ikigai).
If that isn’t ikigai, then what is ikigai really? Like most things, there’s a lot of misinformation floating around online. Over the last five years, I’ve given myself a self-directed education in life purpose. I’ve read five books about ikigai and conducted countless hours of research. What I noticed is that every author and source of information takes a different angle on the concept. I believe I’ve been able to put many of the puzzle pieces together and redesign the diagram to better reflect the true meaning of ikigai.
This eBook exists because it’s what I would have wanted to read when I was first beginning my search for life purpose. My goal is to make it the only ikigai guide you will ever need. Welcome to Ikigai 2.0.
The Ikigai 2.0 guidebook takes you on a 70-page, step-by-step journey.
You’ll learn the origin of of the four-circle diagram, the history of ikigai, and its true meaning. From there, we’ll evolve the four-circle diagram (what I call Ikigai 1.0) into a redesigned model (Ikigai 2.0). But, a model is only useful if it can be applied to real life. So, I put myself to the test and show you exactly how I use Ikigai 2.0 in my own life.
A key part of Ikigai 2.0 is that making money is optional. For those who want to make money as a byproduct of their life purpose, there are additional chapters that show you exactly how to do it—and how I’m doing it in my own life.
The Workbook (Bonus):
Your Ikigai 2.0 workbook is 20 pages and follows the flow of the guidebook so you can find your own ikigai.
It can be used as an actual workbook or as a reference guide along with your favorite notebook or journal. Brainstorm. Take notes. Fill in all the blanks.
You may need multiple attempts of trial and error before you feel good about where you land. You may also have multiple ikigai you want to complete separately.
Here’s to the ongoing journey toward life purpose!
