Description

What do you want to be when you grow up? It's a familiar question we're all asked as kids. While seemingly harmless, the question has unintended consequences. It can make you feel like you need to choose one job, one passion, one thing to be about. Guess what? You don't.

Having a lot of different interests, projects, and curiosities doesn't make you a "jack-of-all-trades, master of none". Your endless curiosity doesn't mean you are broken or flaky. What you are is a multipotentialite: someone with many interests and creative pursuits. And that is actually your biggest strength.

How to Be Everything helps you channel your diverse passions and skills to work for you. Based on her popular TED talk "Why Some of Us Don't Have One True Calling", Emilie Wapnick flips the script on conventional career advice. Instead of suggesting that you specialize, choose a niche, or accumulate 10,000 hours of practice in a single area, Wapnick provides a practical framework for building a sustainable life around all of your passions.

You'll discover:

  • Why your multipotentiality is your biggest strength, especially in today's uncertain job market
  • How to make a living and structure your work if you have many skills and interests
  • How to focus on multiple projects and make progress on all of them
  • How to handle common insecurities such as the fear of not being the best, the guilt associated with losing interest in something you used to love, and the challenge of explaining "what you do" to others

Not fitting neatly into a box can be a beautiful thing. How to Be Everything teaches you how to design a life, at any age and stage of your career, that allows you to be fully you and find the kind of work you'll love.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

I finally have a name for this “thing”

I heard Emily’s ted talk and I’m happy she wrote this book. I’ll keep it on heavy rotation when I need affirmation that being multi-passionate doesn’t make me flakey. Rather, it keeps me interested in life.

Much needed

I wish I had found this earlier in life. I used to think I was a lost cause because I couldn’t just pick one interest to pursue in my professional life. Now I understand that I’m ok, I have a great palette of colorful experiences to mush together and bring much more value into the things I do. Thank you Emilie Wapnick for this wonderful book. You saved me from feeling like I didn’t have a place in this world.

Must-read for multipotentialites

This is a fantastic book for people like me that have a myriad of interests and passions, and that want to pursue several of them professionally. The world promotes us to focus on one career choice and looks down upon those of us with a wide skill set or range of expertise. And there is virtually no promotion of life-long learning, at least not in general. But this book helps you break free from the less is more conditioning and helps you to realize that having many passions and skills is actually a good thing, and gives you tips on how to pursue 'passion projects' or become an entrepreneur.

Erfrischende Sichtweise auf Generalisten

Das Konzept des Multipotentialites wurde klar vermittelt und in einer sehr hörerfreundlichen Weise und sehr anschaulich erzählt. Das Hörbuch gibt eine völlig neue Sichtweise auf die Potentiale von Menschen, die nicht eine Expertenkarriere anstreben. Man konnte dadurch viel mitnehmen. Für meinen Geschmack waren es etwas zu viele Geschichten und Beispiele, da ich mich gerne auf das wesentliche konzentriere. Allerdings kann ich dieses Hörbuch jedem empfehlen, der sich bei der Studiums- & Berufswahl nicht zu sehr einschränken möchte und durch Eintönigkeit unglücklich wird.
