Thread: How to do a million things?

  1. #11


    You could Refuse to Choose.

    Barbra Sher offers advice to people she calls "scanners" in the book(see link above).

    The gist is to figure out what type of scanner you are and use the strategy that'll work well for you.

    The most common themes seem to be to
    1) set-up a way to capture and accumulate the creative impulses that take you in many directions. You may find out that you cycle and keep bringing you back to the same things.
    2) Don't measure success the same way specialists like to measure success. You may realize that you have captured and accumulated skills, knowledge, or work that is incredibly unique to yourself. You will need to be creative in learning how to make use of this uniqueness.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    For example, write a book about being a scanner.
