Do you feel like there are so many things you would like to do in your lifetime? Or that it would be absolutely mind numbing to pick one location, career, partner or passion for the rest of your life? Maybe you have many varied talents, and picking just one would cause the world to miss out on all your other gifts? If you’ve taken the Meyer’s Briggs personality test, you might have rated as an INFP or ENFP. Regardless of your tendency towards introvert or extrovert (it’s a scale not a choice) it’s the intuitive, feeling, perceiving part of your personality that gives you special gifts.
Those special gifts don’t deserve to be cooped-up in an office working a traditional nine to five!
So spread your wings and raise your hand along with me and Alex Wood- as we declare ourselves Variety Seekers! No worries, you are not alone in this search for your purpose as a creative entrepreneur. Alex co-founded HoneLife which hosts the variety seeker tribe of like-minded free-spirits.
In this interview we talk about the struggles and joys of being Variety Seekers. He shares tips for balancing our passions in life and business. In fact, having your own business can actually be a great option for Variety Seekers.
When starting a new career or venture, Alex Wood describes his strategy much like mastering a video game. Like most variety seekers, when he’s beat that game, it’s on to the next. In reality, Alex worked his way up the ranks in the military by identifying his unique strengths, and his competition’s weakness (Sorry Brad). Despite his success, when asked about his future there Alex says, “I love the fact that I don’t know, that my life will change and I will try something new. The possibility, the unknown, no obligations or limitations is a good feeling. I’m excited about that.” With endless possibilities for our future, we should be excited too. There’s no better security in life than options.
