So… what the hell is a Passioneer?
Think polymath. Scanner. Renaissance Soul. Multipotentialite. Multipassionate.
There are ten thousand words for what we are. And I’m just honest enough that I’m not comfortable using someone else’s.
(Besides, I like imagining myself in a captain’s hat on the high seas.)
If you have two passions that seem to conflict – say, aerospace engineering and working with big cats – then you’re a Passioneer.
If you confound your friends and family by taking your interest to the point of mastery and then moving on to something else, then you’re a Passioneer.
If you thrive on wildly divergent projects running simultaneously, then you’re a Passioneer.
If you live for new experiences and feel no desire to return for a second helping, then you’re a Passioneer.
If you have the experience to contribute to a conversation in almost any topic, or you have the desire to do so, then you’re a Passioneer.
Does any of that sound familiar? If so, congratulations, and welcome to The Good Ship Lifestyle!
Here you’ll find a refuge from the judgement of popular wisdom, which looks down upon the Jack of all trades.
Here you’ll find the space to claim your passions and practice until you can pilot them consistently.
Here you’ll find the community to support your failures, discuss your ideas and celebrate your successes.
And here you’ll find the courage and confidence to steer a course for your passions and set sail to change the world!
Because you, the Passioneer, are essential to the future. As a society, we’ve specialized ourselves into some incredibly risky waters. Our world is full of multi-faceted problems that can’t be solved by someone who is just a doctor, just a lawyer, just an evolutionary biologist or just a politician. We need people with a broad range of experience in divergent fields who can think critically and create solutions in the overlapping edges between subjects.
We need Passioneers. We need you.
