The moment I realised I am a 'heptathlete'
The dreaded question... ‘So what do you do?’
I have always been one of those people that has multiple passions and multiple strands to my bow. I was cool with that and fully embraced my creativity (or so I thought)
But today I realised that very same understanding has been holding me back in my business- massively!
I realised I held the story (ingrained from school days, books and societies conditioning) that in order to be a 'master' at your craft you had to focus all in on one discipline.
For so many years I struggled with the abundance of ideas and options that flooded my mind...
Which ones should I follow?
If I honour one does it meaning dropping the others?
How will I tell people about what I do?
Ahhh, now I need another business card...
Which email address should I send this from?
I’m confused about who I am so I’m pretty sure other people are...
It resulted in confusion and overwhelm and feeling like I was scattering my focus so thinly and not really achieving anything at all. My confidence suffered and I cringed when asked the dreaded question: ‘So what do you do?’
