    HOT TOPIC Are you a Multipotentialite/Polymath?

    So I stumbled across this term last year some time, while it sounds corny at first, I realised I fit the definition. "A multipotentialite is a person who has many different interests and creative pursuits in life. Multipotentialites have no “one true calling” the way specialists do." The term...

    INTRO My story: SCRIPTED living in education/academia

    I've read both books by MJ DeMarco for a while. However, because I am in a PhD program, the sunken cost was huge (at least in my mind) and I was reluctant to take any initiative to exit.
