Refuse to Choose by Barbara Sher

I just finished reading Barbara Sher's book Refuse to Choose on my Kindle. I have read Barbara Sher's other books like Wishcraft and I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was: How to Discover What You Really Want and How to Get It and really enjoyed them. Refuse to Choose is about people who have multiple interests and could never have just one passion.  That is me. Which is why I call myself a renaissance woman. I don't really like that label and I like the label Sher uses "scanner" even less. But I can't come up with a better one.

Sher does have some really good ideas about how to maximize your potential if you are a multi-facetted individual and I found the book very empowering. My only complaint is that she spends a lot of time talking about jobs for scanners and about how you shouldn't feel like a failure because you can't focus on just one thing in life. Neither of these things are issues for me. Like Ben Franklin I am no longer employed and I am exploring my multiple interests and loving it.

The other thing I loved about this book is that Barbara Sher has a very active Twitter community and a good web site. It makes the book all the more interesting.

This is my tenth book this year. Here is my list.
