“Everything is becoming more multi-everything.”
“I think it’s a great time to be a multipotentialite because of where we’re at with technology and everything that’s possible.”
“We don’t really talk about the people who are doing many things and really thriving and they’re out there.”
If you’re struggling to learn new things, Emilie suggests these actions to build a learning habit:
1) Think about micromastery, such as learning how to perfect an omelet instead of learning how to cook
2) Break down what you’re trying to learn into the smallest things possible and start there.
