Why You Should Listen to Yourself and Do What You Want to Do

During our multipotentialite mixer the other day, someone asked me if I thought they needed to make videos for their website when they prefer writing blog posts. They had noticed that with their audience, videos perform better and get more traction than written content. We chatted back and forth. I had some thoughts about how […]

2018 is Nearly Here! Looking Back & Looking Forward

Well multipotentialites, we’ve reached the end of another interesting year. That can only mean one thing: it’s time to publish one of my informal annual reviews/goal setting posts! 2017: The “Year of Rest”? When I wrote up last year’s goal-setting post, I declared 2017 to be the “year of rest.” It was an aspirational goal–one […]

Words like “success” and “failure” have never meant much to me. Other people seem to care a great deal about these words, but I don’t really know what they mean. They seem so abstract and subjective. There are examples you can point to and say: “that person’s clearly a success!” Someone who’s career has taken […]

What Makes a Successful Multipotentialite?

Everybody wants success. And (nearly) everybody wants cake. Simple, right? Bake a cake, achieve some success… everybody’s happy. But the difference between cake and success is that everybody agrees what cake is. You can point to “a cake”. But there’s no such thing as “a success” that we can all point to and agree on. […]

Why You Need Your Multipotentialite Inner Child

I never really grew out of childishness. It’s just so fun. Children get to be curious, silly, and playful, and there’s something delightfully mindful about the capacity they have to get absorbed in an activity for hours on end.

The Science of Being an Authentic Multipotentialite

A few years ago, I was contacted by some Canadian researchers who were studying “people with multiple work identities.” They wanted to interview me for their study, in order to learn about my personal experiences as well as what I’ve observed among my multipotentialite community (i.e. you guys). I jumped at the opportunity. There isn’t […]

Self-Doubt, Confusion, and Feeling Like a Mess When You’re a Multipotentialite

Are you a multipod with tons of aspirations and projects who sometimes (or maybe most of the time) feels like you can’t get anything done? This week, I decided to record a video reply to Martina, who posted a question about this issue in the forums of the Puttytribe. Check it out: Your Turn How […]
