Are you ALL OVER THE PLACE? It’s OK.
Feeling guilty because you keep getting distracted and pulled into a different direction than what you are supposed to be focusing on? Maybe your blog, your career, your at-home projects? I was right there with you a few years ago. We are sometimes called “scanner” personalities, Renaissance men/women, multi-potentialities or my favorite a “multi-passionate entrepreneur”.
Symptoms of this unique situation are described as:
- Someone who has numerous and diverse interests in many things at once and all at the same time.
- Someone who loves to learn new subjects, but then might move onto something else quickly without actually finishing the first project they started.
- Someone who daydreams and has creative ideas all the time.
- Someone who has more than one all-consuming passion.
I’m here to tell you……IT’S OK. I know, I know…..As a good blogger I should be giving you advice you need to hear on how to deal with this fantastic condition, but sorry. I’m one of you, and frankly, I like it. I’ve embraced my inner chaos and I make it work for me. With a little focus and reminding myself to stay on track, I do just fine. But most of all, I follow my heart and “that” makes me happy.
Did you know that Steve Jobs was a multi-potentialite? Many very successful people are scanner personalities. So join the tribe with me and these folks:
Leonardo da Vinci
and many others.
