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 […]

Sometimes the Impulsive Choice Is the Right Choice

I have a new project in my life: I’m developing a TV series and writing a script for the pilot episode. It’s fun. SO SO SO SO SO SO FUN! You might say I’m in the multipotentialite honeymoon period right now. I’ve wanted to do this for years. It’s a goal that hasn’t always been […]

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 […]

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. […]

Does Sharing Your Goals Sabotage Your Chances of Success?

You’re at a party and a friend asks what you’ve been up to. Unable to tone down your enthusiasm, you dive in and tell them about your new project: a murder-mystery-in-a-box game that you’re creating! “WOW!” They say, “Tell me more…” You go on for a while, describing the difference scenarios and characters… You omit […]

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 […]
