I’ve been thinking of adding this category for awhile. I have a sneaking suspicion that newly-realized “multipotentialites” and other multi-passionate people (or “scanners” as Barbara Sher would call them) are middle to late-aged.
Of course, there are plenty of 20- 30- and 40-year olds who feel they “haven’t done anything with their life” yet. Now think about, it takes a bit of a timeline to look back to discover patterns. You can’t figure out that something is not right for you until you have actually given it a good try, had a few experiences under your belt.
It’s only natural that discoveries are made later in life, and dare I say after seeing a more accurate picture of one’s interests? Therefore, rejoice slow pokes and late bloomers everywhere! I know we all wanted to arrive faster, but at least WE ARRIVED!
I’d love to hear your slow poke, late bloomer story! Feel free to share!
