When Working On Your Projects Feels Horribly Painful…

I’m writing an original television pilot script right now. I’m on draft #2 after my dear filmmaker friend (whose storytelling skills I completely trust) gave me copious amounts of feedback.

Why You Should Stop Freaking Out About Wasting Your Time

We can’t control whether to spend our time, only what we spend it on. This thought has echoed around and around in my mind ever since I read the story of Opus 40 – a sculpture park created by one man over 37 years(!). Part of me recoils in horrified terror at the thought of […]

The “Awards”: A Super Fun and Insightful Way to Review Your Year

Note from Emilie: Happy New Year! In last week’s post I shared my very free-form annual review and goals for the new year. I tend not to have any specific procedure for doing this, and I like it that way. But after reading about Neil’s method, I find myself wanting to head to a coffee […]

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 […]

Use It or Lose It: a Terrifying Concept for Multipotentialites?

In the last few years I’ve developed a much better exercise habit. But it’s not a consistent habit. There are times when I stay disciplined and push myself for months on end. And then there are the weeks when energy and discipline are harder to come by, and I let it slide. After one of […]

Why “Success” is an Unhelpful Idea and How to Really Flourish as a Multipotentialite

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 […]
