The Infamous (Anti-)Goal-Setting Post of 2019

Hi friends! For several years now, I’ve published an annual “looking ahead at the new year” post here on Puttylike. I started calling it an anti-goal-setting post because, as time goes by, I find the traditional notion of “goals” less and less appealing and helpful for me. Instead of having specific, measurable, well-defined goals, I […]

“Are you sure that’s a good idea?” asked a family member, doubtfully.

I was super excited about my plan. I was going to write a book, and do software development, and share about anxiety through stand-up comedy. “Are you sure that’s a good idea?” asked a family member, doubtfully. And that was enough to utterly deflate me. One comment! And not even a harsh one—a simple question. […]

What Did Our Community of Multipotentialites Get up to in 2018?

I also like looking back and reflecting on the last twelve months. I usually publish an annual review on Puttylike–and I’ll be getting […]

How to Use “The Immersive Approach” to Make Big Progress on a Project

Three years ago, I found myself committing to something kind of ridiculous. I’m a writer–but I’d been struggling to finish short, 1000-word articles, and I hadn’t written a word of fiction in the previous three years. I tried to schedule specific times to focus and get stuff on paper, but other things (work duties, social […]

How to Find a Role Model as a Multipotentialite

A role model is exactly what it sounds like: someone who fits a role that you’d like to model. If you want to be an actor, your role model might be Dev Patel. If you want to be a media mogul, your role model might be Oprah. The problem is, when you fit multiple roles, […]

My Experience with Chronic Illness

I’ll be honest, I’m having a really hard time writing this post. I’ve blogged about my experiences with chronic illness a little in the past, but I’ve been wanting to share more because I think it’s important. I know chronic illness is something many other multipods struggle with. As the “resident multipotentialite” here at Puttylike […]

Why Goals Aren’t Enough—You Need to Set Directions

Recently, I caught up with a friend I don’t get to see often enough. Neither of us were in a Major Life Crisis, so we were doing that thing where we swap minor problems back and forth—everything from busyness to boredom to the various ways our aging bodies are mysteriously misbehaving. Naturally, we share that […]

What Does a Community of Multipotentialites LOOK Like?

Hi multipotentialite friends! I’m a little giddy this morning because I have something to show you. So many of you have emailed me over the years with questions about the Puttytribe. It seems that many of you don’t really understand what the community is… Like, what is it EXACTLY??? A forum?…Group coaching?…Huh?? Well, it’s time […]
