An amazing TED Talk about scanners!

Postby joannajameslynn » Tue May 26, 2015 12:36 pm

There's an AMAZING new TED talk out about scanners! It just went live today. It's by Emilie Wapnick from the website Puttylike, and she calls scanners 'multipotentialites'. It's all about what scanners are and why it's good to be a scanner.

She explains it really, really well. I think this talk is going to help a lot of people - both scanners (to understand themselves and stop beating themselves up for not being able to stick to things) and non-scanners (to understand people like us). I'm going to share it with everyone I know, to try and get the concept and understanding out there.

What do you think of it? I think it's perfect!

P.S. I forgot to say, it's called 'Why Some of us Don't Have One True Calling'.

I like it a lot, and I shared it on FB.

Nice to see Emilie getting the message out like this. She was active on this board, wasn't she?
