Would you describe yourself as a multi-hyphenate, multipotentialite, or in my case the proverbial 'slashie', meaning that I have so many strings to my bow, and things that I love to do in my work, that I find it difficult to encapsulate it all into one job title.
Being a multipotentialite or multi-hyphenate doesn't always have to relate to our work, it can relate to all of the things that we do in work, in careers, at home, in our interests; in live overall. Having so many things on the go at the same time can lead to overwhelm if we're trying to do them all at the same time, and feeling as though we not giving all the attention to all things at all times. Enter then the concept of the Carousel, devised by my lovely client - and multipotentialite - Sarah Weiler, who honours that having variety in life and career doesn't have to mean doing all the things at the same time, and that variety can also mean focus. Not one or the other.
Sarah has spent the last 12 years teaching, facilitating and coaching all over the world and working hard to build a life full of activities that make her feel alive. These include: Power of Uke (using the ukulele to access Growth Mindset and Creativity in corporate organisations like Google and PWC), Rye Laughs Comedy night, DJing, stand-up comedy, career and life coaching, teaching money mindset, becoming a TEDx speaker around the topic of Quitting and most recently creating The Carousel. Her claim to fame is her GDPR comedy song, which went viral.
So listen in to this fascinating conversation, as we celebrate our lives of having lots of different creative ideas and projects on the go.
On the show we chat:
Just what the Carousel is, and how we can adopt it into our lives. Why there has been a societal bias towards focus over variety, when actually the Carousel means you can have both. Why doing less and taking time to be 'off' to 'do nothing' feeds the energy and flow of your creative projects, work and life in general. Embracing the cyclical / seasonal nature of life and our work. How bringing in Sarah's principles of quitting can actually benefit the rest of your life and work, rather than fearing it. How to bring the carousel into your life as a way of living. Just what's on Sarah's carousel right now, and what's at the back of her carousel.
