What's the worst thing that can happen?

IKIGAI, The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life is an International best seller written by Héctor García & Francesc Miralles on the studies of longevity in across the globe, but with a focus on Ogimi, a small village in Okinawa, Japan with the highest number of centenarians in the world. Diet, mental and physical exercise and a strong sense of

community are just some common attributes to a long life, but living with a sense of purpose, or IKIGAI, is the key.

There is an excerpt in the book that discusses resiliency and wabi-sabi (the acceptance of transience and imperfection).
