From the Back Cover
What do you want to be when you grow up?
It's a familiar question we're all asked as kids. While seemingly harmless, it 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.
- How to identify the best career fit for your unique personality
- How to make a living and structure your work around many interests, especially in today's uncertain job market
- How to focus on multiple projects and make progress on all of them
- How to handle common insecurities, including 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.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

It includes guidance in terms of the most usual approaches that multipods take in their careers as well as valuable tips for getting organised, overcoming procrastination, getting things done, finding occupations that combine several interests together…very relevant topics for people that want to get a lot done, often on unrelated topics.
Emilie has made it work and that is why she is an inspiration for many others who are still limiting themselves trying to be “normal”, doing one thing at a time.
I think this book could easily become a classic read for multipods. Highly recommended.
Much to my joy I discovered there is always more we can learn. I found her witty wisdom and practicality incredibly helpful in thinking through my next round of challenges. I related to her own story as well as the case studies she shared. I was inspired by the four multipotentialite work models to consider where I am within those. And came to understand that even which model we're currently in may change over time as our life evolves.
Although the book focuses on career, Emilie points out that what we are really talking about here is life. And that is so very true.
