Ever been overwhelmed by all of your passions, and had no idea how to fit everything you want to do into your life? I’m one of those people who has so many interests that it took changing my major about five times to settle down with one. From business, to design, journalism and medicine, it’s sometimes hard balancing all of my interests. A while ago I picked up this book from the library and couldn’t put it down:
Wow! his book described me exactly, and the advice in it shows how you can still pursue every one of your passions, even if people around you discourage you. I loved the tips for students and entrepreneurs. With enough balance and planning throughout life you won’t be a “jack-of all-trades and master of none”, but a real Renaissance woman.
The book gives examples of “Renaissance Souls” throughout history, like Dr. Maya Angelou who has done everything from acting and producing, to writing and being a civil-rights activist. I loved this book so much that I was taking notes, re-reading parts and had to renew it 4 times (the limit) and held it hostage for another few weeks or so raking up some library fines. It was worth it though! You can find out more at the author’s website or pick up a copy at Amazon. I think I may have to buy it because I still haven’t finished it.
One more way to become the essence of a Renaissance Woman.
