It’s funny how you end up where you need to be, even if you didn’t know where that was when you started.
My life has gone from A to B, then zig zagged over to D and then to F and now I think I’m at about M. And I still have half of the alphabet to go!
My whole purpose in starting this blog was to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I thought everyone had ONE destination in life. And while many people do, I am not one of them.
I AM DIVERGENT.
Yes I stole that from a movie, but that’s what I really am.
I was going to update the My Story page, but I changed my mind. It really serves as an example that proves my point. I do need to update it with everything I’ve learned, tried and done since I wrote it, but I think my divergency needs to be written about in a different spot. So that’s what I’m doing now.
If you go to the My Story page you will see I talk about Health and Eating Gluten Free, Yoga, Planners, Writing a Book, and Creating Designs. That’s all in the last six years. And that’s just the high points. There were many other ideas, plans, and rabbits holes I went into.
And speaking of rabbit holes, I found a doosy. One that helped me figure out why I had so many interests, why I couldn’t complete all my projects and why I got bored so easily.
The rabbit hole I dropped down just a couple of weeks ago started when I watched a Ted talk by Emilie Wapnick. The title is “Why Some of Us Don’t Have One True Calling.”
Some people can’t pick one passion and stick to it. Some people have multiple often divergent interests. It’s just the way our brains work.
I often feel like that robot in the 80’s movie Short Circuit. I need more input.
My brain is never happy unless I’m learning or challenging myself.
Other names for people like me are Renaissance Souls, Scanners, and Multipotentalites.
Famous people like me include Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Maya Angelou, Aristole, and Leonardo Di Vinci.
We are interested in many things. Often moving from Art to Science to History and beyond. Writing, creating and inventing.
Letting learning and our interests show us the way.
So I’m going to breathe some life into Rebecca’s Roadmap and let you know what I’m doing.
I’m going to see if I can come up with some better ways to plan and goal set that incorporate ALL of my interests.
I think we need multi-passionate planning!
