What do you want to be when you grow up? Lots of things?

If you’re not sure you want to do just one thing for the rest of your life, you’re not alone. In this great TED talk, writer and artist Emilie Wapnick describes the kind of people she calls “multipotentialites” — who have a range of interests and jobs over one lifetime. Are you one? The benefits of this “wiring” include idea synthesis & innovation, rapid learning & adaptability.

Brilliant examples help you understand at it’s not only OK to be keen on lots of things – but actually can be a huge advantage.  Combing specialists with multipotentialites creates great teams, for example. Listen to what she says – I think I just realised I am one!
