Playing Music Might Aide in Your Success

Multipotentialites are highly creative people. I’ve seen this reflected in the arts, music, healing arts, spirituality, maker culture, and other areas. I’ve noticed that many multipotentialites have picked up a musical instrument (or two) at some point in their lives, Emilie and myself included. Both of us share the violin and guitar in common. A […]

The Multipotentialite Musician (or Why Your Message is more Important than Your Skill Level)

The crowd awaited Bob Dylan’s usual appearance as the roadies started setting up equipment. But something was wrong…wait a minute…guitar amps? Drums?!! Wasn’t this the darling of true folkies who […]

The Curse and Blessing of the Multipotentialite (or the Month in which I was a Rock Star)

I forgot how much fun it is to mix a song. Music used to be my refuge. I went through a particularly rough period when I was 18-19. An important friendship had just ended, I was at a new school that was big and anonymous and my band of four years had disintegrated– My band, […]

Are Multipotentialites Driven by Discomfort?

I just got back from an amazing week at Cammac. I used to go for a week every summer with my family. I went from about the ages of 5 to 17. They’ve got a kids program and an adult program, so there’s something for everyone. As a kid, Cammac was a magical place where […]

What’s Your “No Matter What”?

This is a guest post by Ethan Waldman. I was cooking dinner the other night and one of my favorite songs came on. The way that the artist combined his carefully crafted words with the perfect swirling background of strings and guitar brought me a moment of complete joy and clarity. It felt magical. My […]
