Multiple career benefits

tools-multi

Here is an interesting HBR article that is the total opposite of Essentialism because it says it’s actually more beneficial to have more than one career: you feel happier and more fulfilled, you develop skills in one job that can be transferred to another, you build a wider social network and find creative interdisciplinary solutions. In short, ‘when you follow your curiosities, you will bring passion to your new careers’ – and this thought really makes me happy. Sometimes I can’t decide whether I want to be a teacher trainer, a materials writer, an examiner, a manager or a teacher (and don’t get me started on all the age groups and subjects!), and it’s wonderful to know that there are people who thrive in multiple careers.

Now, is anyone out there like me? 🙂
