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.

I wish I had found this earlier in life. I used to think I was a lost cause because I couldn’t just pick one interest to pursue in my professional life. Now I understand that I’m ok, I have a great palette of colorful experiences to mush together and bring much more value into the things I do. Thank you Emilie Wapnick for this wonderful book. You saved me from feeling like I didn’t have a place in this world.
