Being a multipotentialite is great, but even if you recognize the benefits that come with being interested in many things, you’re probably only too familiar with the negative emotions that come with not being able to stick to one thing. There you are, bumbling along, excited about the project you’re working on, and then WHAM! […]

How to Stay Calm when Giving a TED Talk (or Doing Anything High-Pressure)

I couldn’t sleep the night before my TED talk. I woke up around 4am and floated in and out of sleep for the rest of the night. My mind was whirling. I tried meditation, yoga, tea, took a bath. It wasn’t happening. I was slotted to speak second-to-last the next day, at nearly 6pm. It […]

Why Some of Us Don’t Have One True Calling (Our TED Talk is Live!)

Last month I had the honour of speaking at TEDxBend. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
