It’s hard to believe that being multi-passionate is a blessing in the career world. Those of you that are, know how hard and confusing it can be to decide what exactly you want to do with your life when you like a lot of different things equally.
The good thing for you is that it is more popular now than ever to create your own career path. With the internet at our fingertips, you have the ability to speak to and collaborate with individuals you may have never met before. You can get involved with companies, businesses, and entrepreneurs who speak to each individual passion. This will help you narrow down your focus a bit, but will also help you hone in on which passions you can combine and create something new.
Multi-passionate people have a innate love for learning new things. They explore a little more and teach themselves all the time. Well-rounded some may say. You’re ability to speak to different areas of the career world can help you connect more with others.
What to do if you’re multi-passionate:
Keep being multi-passionate
Never let people tell you that you need to stick to one thing your whole life. Why would you? There are so many things to learn in this world and sticking to one thing for 50 years won’t expand your mind.
Learn how to make your passions work together
Are you an illustrator that also wants to make cook books? Why don’t you illustrate your own cook books? There are plenty of ways to combine passions so that you are doing everything you love.
Find people who do what you love – and talk to them
Reach out to people who do things you are interested in. Ask them to grab some coffee (or tea if you’re into that) and just get to know them on a personal and career level. This may help you section out things you want to pursue as a career and things you don’t mind keeping as hobbies.
