Is “Multipotentialite” a Real Thing? Is it Really Okay to Be this Way?

This post was written by Joanna Moore. It was a few days before the end of the year and I was finally sitting down to do my annual review. At last, it was time to grab hold of the tangle of dreams in my head and to tease each out into a concrete goal for […]

My Goals (or Lack Thereof) for 2015

I’ve restarted this post about half a dozen times now. I’m having a difficult time describing my goals for 2015, and I think that’s because I’ve been feeling a need lately to NOT plan.

My environment has changed drastically over the course of the last twelve months and things look radically different now than they did in January […]

How To Hit the Pillow Each Night Feeling Completely Fulfilled and Satisfied

I rested my head on my pillow. What a good day, I thought. What a good good day! It felt full, whole, satisfying. What had made today so great? I pondered. I thought for a minute, reached for my notebook and pen, and sketched the following: All four of these elements had been present in […]

“Mike the Musician” or The Dangers of Doing Only One Thing

Note from Emilie: This is a guest post by Mike Pumphrey. I have a confession to make. I’m not a multipotentialite. At least not by nature. Instead, I’ve trained myself to be one. Is such a thing possible? Can you learn to be a scanner if your natural temperament leads you to do one thing […]
