Ethan! This is awesome, thank you. It was such a pleasure having you visit.
I too adore the idea of co-working. It makes an enormous difference. It's why I choose to work at cafes that have a lot of other entrepreneurs working away on their laptops (there's a fantastic one right near my home in Portland).
Also, I love that idea of the writing group, Shanna! Lauren (of the Puttytribe) also suggested doing a 24 hour all-nighter event, you know like the way you would back in college. We would all be working on a project and would check in at regular intervals in the Puttytribe chat. Sounds exhausting, but I bet we'd be massively productive. :)

@JonathanMead @ethanwaldman Funny enough, I think about this quote sometimes too. And I'm all ABOUT doing multiple things. Heh. But the two approaches really aren't in conflict. I focus on one type of activity in the morning (my "creating time"), get it done and then move on to other types of work. And if I'm unproductive in the afternoon, then I just think back to the work I got done that morning, and tell myself to chill out.

roguepolymath He is most definitely not alone. :) Thanks!
EclecticBug Ah I love that-- [Tiny details ~ big solutions] ! What's your URL? I'd love to check it out.
This is awesome, Ethan. I love the idea. Another thing that works is using an image like this as your desktop image.
(I also love how this post is very multipotentialite in nature, in that it takes place at the intersection between technology and personal goal-setting.)

DouglasEby That's the idea. But we couldn't do it if multipotentialites/scanners like you didn't help. :)
ladyterroreducation Thanks! Your interests are fantastic too. Sounds like a fun life to me!

saraboargs Yeah, I'd love that Sara! Lets twitter it up.
Also, awesome pants!
DanRiha Hahaha-- lets go with wilderness guide. ;)
MichiLantz Aw you're awesome, Michi. Thank you. Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions after going through the book. :)
CMGalvin I bet you picked up some really interesting knowledge throughout those 15 degree changes! I too studied a bunch of different things in school (music, art, film, law...) it's fun, exploring your passions, as long as you embrace your "scanning" instead of making it a source of stress or some sign of failing. Sounds like you're starting to get to that point though, which is awesome!
MichiLantz Hi Michi, first, thank you for the kind words.
Usually when I work with a student, we go through a number exercises to come up with patterns and find their overarching theme. It's tough figuring out where your dots connect without running through the worksheets or hearing more about your interests in detail. However, from what you've said, it sounds like spirituality/soul is a big overarching theme for you: bringing soul to art, leadership and life. That seems to be what you're all about.
a_creative_life I completely agree. I've always "scanned" by nature, but it wasn't till I became aware of what I was doing and dropped the fear of not being "one thing", that life seemed to really take off.
I'm actually incredibly grateful for Puttylike, because I feel that it has given me permission to be the biggest multipotentialite in the world. After all, my career depends on it-- gotta walk the walk, ya know? :)
sherahart Writing is certainly a fantastic career for some multipotentialites. There's a lot of space in there for exploring different topics and different styles.
gabyers Oh I'm so glad. Thank you!
tishpiper That's great Tish. There's certainly a way to bridge business and your holistic spirit. It actually sounds like a very appealing twist on business-- something that could make you really stand out.
SuiteJ That's darling. And your daughter is so lucky to have such an awesome dad. :)
There's really nothing better than parents who encourage their children to embrace all their interests. I dedicated my book to my parents for that reason. :)
