How to Keep Track of All Your Ideas

If you’re anything like me, you have several exciting ideas a day. Sometimes it’s an idea for a business. Sometimes it’s an idea for a new hobby. Sometimes it’s an idea for a quest or an activity that you’d like to do. Having that many ideas floating around in your head can be quite stressful. […]

The Joy and Horror of Being Really Really Busy

Being busy is not a novel concept for most multipotentialites. I often have to say no to projects, or make plans to hang out with someone weeks out. Sometimes I take 10+ days to email people back (but I always respond). Busyness is just part of the game, and usually my productivity strategies help me manage […]

Are You Blurring the Line between Work and Play?

This one is for the self-employed multipotentialites. Have you found that the line between your personal and business passions is so blurred that it’s pretty much non-existent most of the time?

3 Nifty Strategies for Picking Your Next Project

The trouble with having so many interests is that you can end up in choice paralysis, so unsure about which idea to start on next that you end up starting nothing. It can become all too easy to over-think the process.  “What if I make the wrong choice? I don’t want to waste all my time […]

Are You Living Your Life on Autopilot?

I’ve got some terrible habits. I eat my lunch while I’m working and barely notice what my food actually tastes like. If I make myself a cup of tea, I find I’ve become so engrossed in something else that I forget about it until it gets cold. Or, worse still, I pick the cup up to […]

Have You Made this Common Multipotentialite Mistake?

I’d always thought it was normal to dive head first into five projects at once. Doesn’t everyone work like this? No, I later found out. Apparently they don’t. While being a multipotentialite is fantastic, it does present certain challenges. Unfortunately in our modern, specialist-oriented world, we’re often left feeling unprepared for how to handle your […]

How to Focus when there is No One Focus

As a self employed multipotentialite, I juggle writing gigs, web design and graphic design projects. I dream of being a life coach, having my own e-course and/or membership site, filling sold out workshops and in-person retreats, and writing Amazon bestsellers. I have a million ideas bouncing around in my head that I have yet to […]
