Have you ever taken one of those career-placement tests? You know, the ones that supposedly assess your strengths and interests, apply a mathematical formula, and spit out your ideal job? How did that work out for you?
…Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Multipotentialites don’t have “one true passion”, we just don’t. In fact, some of us have so many passions that it’s hard to keep track of them all.
How do you know which interests to focus on and which to keep on the back burner? And how do you figure this all out and design a life around many of your interests without becoming overwhelmed?
Start with a Blueprint
You can’t live a life based around your many interests, without a clear picture of what those interests are. They can change and evolve, that’s fine. Your days can have flexibility and freedom built into them to make room for any new interests that emerge, but we have to start somewhere. Saying “I’m interested in everything!” is a cop-out. You know what you love (and at the very least, you certainly know what you hate)!
Lets get the good stuff down on paper so that you can consciously construct a schedule that includes everything that’s important to you.
Abe and I have put together a worksheet to help you figure out exactly who you are and what activities light you up. Consider this step one in designing your ultimate scanner lifestyle.
Make sure you write down your answers. There’s nothing quite like seeing a complete picture of YOU right there before you. Having it on paper makes it more objective, more real.
And if doing it alone sounds daunting and/or annoying, how about following along with us!
