3 Questions to Ask When You Don’t Know What to Do with Your Life

Deciding what to do with your life is difficult for anyone, but for multipotentialites it’s usually even harder. A lot of conventional career advice doesn’t work for us, and trying to follow it can make us miserable. Over the years, Emilie’s shared plenty of ideas about how multipotentialites might go about finding the right career(s) or […]

Do You Plan, Ruminate, Worry, Poke, Prod, and Fumble? How to Stop Overanalyzing Your Projects

I’ve been planning to write this post for approximately seven years. Every possible paragraph has been carefully researched. Each of my thoughts has been passed by a number of focus groups. (In fact, the focus groups were themselves chosen by focus groups, although it took me several months of careful focus-grouping to discover that that was […]

Pre-order my book, HOW TO BE EVERYTHING and you’ll get some sweet bonuses (plus my eternal love)

Greetings multipotentialite friends! I’ve dreamed of this moment for the last twelve months–the moment I could officially let the cat out of the bag and tell you what I’ve been up to. In early 2016, I signed a publishing contract with HarperCollins to write a book for and about multipotentialites. Since then, I’ve been working […]

“Multipotentialites can’t stick with anything long enough to build successful careers.”

“Multipotentialites can’t stick with anything long enough to build successful careers.”

There are a lot of misconceptions out there about multipotentialites. Today I’d like to address one of the biggest: that multipotentialites can’t stick with anything long enough to build successful careers. It’s true that multipotentialites sometimes have fleeting interests. We love to explore and we can be passionate about a subject one day and lose […]

Do You Feel the Need to Be Impressive?

Hi, my name’s Neil Hughes and, because I’m human, I want you to be impressed by me. This is normal. We are social animals, so it’s natural to be concerned about our status within the tribe. Am I important? What will people think when they meet me? As ever, there’s both a healthy mindset and […]

2017: The Year of… Rest?

2017: The Year of… Rest?

I like to end and begin most years by looking back and looking forward. That makes this my official “infamous goal-setting post” of 2017. Looking Back on 2016 I know a lot of us are grateful to leave 2016 behind. The social and political climate has obviously had an impact on my life, but that’s not what I’m going […]

Christmas, Friendships and Living in the “In-Betweens”

Most multipotentialites are intimately familiar with the “in-betweens.” We love exploring the connections between disparate ideas and we often work in industries that intersect with other areas. Socially and identity-wise we often inhabit the “in betweens,” as well. We may find ourselves floating between social groups. I, for one, have always had a motley array […]
