About this Event

At EBBC, our goal is to give people who are serious about their career, personal life and self-development a platform to activate what they read and exchange thoughts with other driven people.

We look forward to seeing you at the monthly interactive EBBC (Entrepreneurial Business Book Club) session in Amsterdam. This one centered around "The Little Book of Ikigai: The secret Japanese way to live a happy and long life" by Ken Mogi. Expect an interesting, introspective and practical session! We activate (y)our Knowledge!

DISCLAIMER: Author of the book will not be present. This is by and for the EBBC community and other curious minds.

The Japanese talk about ikigai as 'a reason to get up in the morning'. It is something that keeps one's enthusiasm for life going, whether you are a cleaner of the famous Shinkansen bullet train, the mother of a newborn child or a Michelin-starred sushi chef. The Five Pillars at the heart of everything they do.

But how do you find your own ikigai? How does ikigai contribute to happiness? Neuroscientist and bestselling Japanese writer Ken Mogi provides an absorbing insight into this way of life, incorporating scientific research and first-hand experience, and providing a colourful narrative of Japanese culture and history along the way.

Ken Mogi identifies five key pillars to ikigai:

Pillar 1: Starting small

Pillar 2: Releasing yourself

Pillar 3:Harmony and sustainability

Pillar 4:The joy of little things

Pillar 5:Being in the here and now

We encourage you to read the book (and/or a summary, youtube videos, podcasts, ...) beforehand. While it is not a requirement, it does make the sessions more interesting and valuable for you as well as the others.
