When Depression Gets in the Way of Your Multipotentiality

“Oh, great. Another story about depression.” Listen, I hear you. Depression is everywhere. It’s in our Twitter feeds, on our podcasts. Even our favorite Queens in the North are talking about it. But you know what’s worse than hearing about how everyone is depressed? Actually being depressed, week after week, month after month. Constantly forgetting […]

How to Stay Productive When Circumstances Get Weird

I’m not ready to write this article. Sometimes I write about topics I know well, so I can share wisdom (don’t laugh!) or advice learned from experience. But I also like to write without knowing the outcome, so I can share what I learn as I go. Unfortunately, the main thing I’ve learned this time […]

5 Productivity Hacks to Help You Juggle Multiple Projects

“We should do a podcast.” “I want to start teaching.” Googles “photography as a side hustle” “Should we write a script together?” Readers, this is how I get into trouble.  There’s so much to do in life and I take massive, mouth-watering bites of it.

How to Change Your Life with One Small Move

Recently, the principles of Feng Shui—an ancient Chinese art which advocates a system of placement within a space to harmonize various energies—became incredibly important to me. (By sheer coincidence, there was an unpleasant job I didn’t want to do, and spending the afternoon rearranging my office seemed preferable.) After some time browsing Feng Shui websites, […]

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 […]

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 […]

When You’re a Multipotentialite with Chronic Illness…

As often happens here at Puttylike, some of our best conversations begin over in the Puttytribe. Recently, some puttypeep got into a great discussion about living with chronic illness as multipotentialites–what it looks like day-to-day, and how to navigate having less energy or capacity than you’d like, especially when you have so many interests you […]
