Why some of us don’t have one true calling

A friend recommended this TED talk from Emilie Wapnick: Why some of us don’t have one true calling.

What do you want to be when you grow up? Well, if you’re not sure you want to do just one thing for the rest of your life, you’re not alone. In this illuminating 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?

I definitely am. This blog came about because I have always had many diverse interests and the blogs I already have on homeopathy, wild food and business didn’t fit with loads of other stuff I wanted to write about.  I’ve also done many jobs over the years.. waitress, research scientist, cheese packer, health food shop assistant, doctors receptionist, administrator, aeroplane cleaner, market stall trader, student, networker, wild food forager and homeopath to name a few.
