"Dabbler" could be my nickname. For a long time, I resisted it -- after all, "jack of all trades, king of none." Then I realised society was imposing this definition of success on me; it says "who you are is defined by what you do, and you can't possibly be good at or interested in many things." So now, I let my curiosity drive me; I connect across disciplines and mindsets; I measure and define success for me. (Cut The Small Talk? Vulnerability. Fears. Shame. Relationships.)
