Which Multipotentialite Season Are You In?

There are times when we’re running full speed on a project (or a handful of projects). We’re deep in it and we feel the momentum. When new, random ideas pop into our minds, we push them to our “someday lists” without much angst. We’re too in love with our main thing(s) right now. There are […]

How to Choose the Right Path When There are SO MANY POSSIBILITIES

To my great surprise, I’ve written two books. The first was non-fiction, and I spent the entire process worrying about making factual errors. I checked and rechecked (and rechecked) everything obsessively. At the very least, I wanted to be able to honestly say that I’d done my best to make sure any information I was […]

6 Tips to Learn More Effectively as a Multipotentialite

Whenever I meet somebody studying an obscure academic niche, I ask so many questions that it usually takes the poor researcher a while to realise I’m not being sarcastic and I genuinely want to know about (for example) 18th century plumbing in the Netherlands.

It wasn’t exactly negative feedback, per se… But he did prompt me to really think about my choices. Does the very first scene represent the […]

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 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.

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