Ikigai, Values and Pharmacy Careers

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

I’m grateful to the folks over at Pharmacy Times, to have given me the shot at writing a regular column for them moving forward over the next year on pharmacy careers.  It will appear in their quarterly digital publication, Pharmacy Careers.

The first of the series was posted this weekend – on finding one’s ikigai, or what I like to call – one’s best life. (OK, I’ll share that one with Oprah.)  Anyway, I start with something I’ve ranted about here several times, but bears repeating, which is the following:

What do you value?

I shared in the column what I value.  But that’s not important.  What’s important is – what do YOU value? If you don’t know, figure it out.  Your values are embedded in everything you do, whether or not you are conscious about it.

We live in an era of authenticity.  One of the things I tell the college students is that it is their job to know themselves better than anyone else – and that starts with a values assessment.

Assess! Go forth and discover the best expedition that life has to offer – FINDING YOURSELF.
