TED最受歡迎的演講者Emilie Wapnick透過自身經驗,分享仍在追尋的你並不孤單

你是否也曾被問過長大要成為什麼樣的人?看似無害的問題卻意外造成無法想像的後果。因為這個問題,每個成人都在思索到底該挑選什麼職業,擁有單一興趣或是專精於某件事才是合乎社會期望。但其實擁有多種興趣及或對任何事都抱有計畫,並不會讓你成為一事無成的人。對任何事保有無窮無盡的好奇心並不是錯誤的,因為你極有可能就是多重潛能者。不喜歡被貼上標籤,隨時改變興趣及熱愛挑戰,這些特質都將可能成為你人生成功的最大助力。傳統社會認為單一志向才是正途,但Emilie Wapnick則認為多重潛能者的特殊天性,更能創造靈感。這些人擁有綜效想法、快速學習力及超乎常人的適應力,唯有擁抱多樣的熱情,跟隨著好奇心,發覺跨領域的交匯點,接納真實的內在天性,你也能成為擁有超凡人生。 

What do you want to be when you grow up? It's a familiar question we're all asked as kids. While seemingly harmless, the question 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.

You'll discover:
•  Why your multipotentiality is your biggest strength, especially in today's uncertain job market.
•  How to make a living and structure your work if you have many skills and interests.
•  How to focus on multiple projects and make progress on all of them.
•  How to handle common insecurities such as the fear of not being the best, 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.
