Lately, I’ve been identifying and introducing myself as a multipotentialite. Since I’m still a tech newbie, I still have a deep attachment to my past life, which includes dance, wellness, events, & writing. As I’m learning new skills, I know I want to make tools that I can use for my other interests.
Being multi-passionate is never a bad thing, it makes us human 🙂 the only tough part may be distributing time and energy properly. Sometimes I get nervous about “narrowing” down my interests, but I think of my interests of either growing or shrinking (since I’m now reviewing flexbox 🤣)- the interests and passion are always there, but maybe at different rates of time & energy invested. And these may change with time itself as well!
I scrolled down the comments to see if anyone would mention the multipotentialite thing! With me I used to feel guilty when I picked up a new hobby and I would try hard to make it "fit" with all my other hobbies.
I've found that for me code is the glue that ties all my hobbies together. This is the video where I first learned about multipotentialites and how it can be a great thing
Yup! That's where I first heard of it! I'm a part of Emilie's online community The Puttytribe- we talk about these things all the time.
