The well-known Career-Expert and Best of HR -® author Svenja Hofert recently wrote on Xing:

So I find the blog so beneficial puttylike, which is about people with multiple interests – and theirs Problems. In his blog post How to Get People to Take You and Your Interests Seriously, Alexander Heyne looks at how someone who likes to jump from one job to another is taken seriously.

Alexander has tried and studied a lot: meditation, archery, survival training, blogging, martial arts, climbing, calligraphy, Chinese philosophy, acupressure, natural medicine, cooking and a good dozen other interests. One sentence that Alexander obviously had to listen to often: “What are you doing with it? It's no use at all. ” His tips against such homicide arguments can be broken down to one important point: It depends on how you stand by the thing and sell it:

5 tips for multi-interested people

  1. Focus ideas: In order not to appear erratic, Alexander makes a list of his next goals. Others can see that he is really serious and doesn't just jump from one idea to the next.
  2. Give the matter a deeper meaning: Anyone who simply jumps from one idea to the next or from one job to the next quickly becomes fickle. Alexander suggests giving the matter a deeper meaning - for example, that you are looking for what you are really passionate about.
  3. Just wait and see: Alexander has found that initial enthusiasm for one thing and then the sudden decline in enthusiasm has a disturbing effect on others. Therefore, he is holding back a bit with his initial enthusiasm until he knows whether he wants to stick to one thing permanently.
  4. Courage to change: Often enough, writes Alexander, he has endured too long in jobs in which he has actually learned enough because others expect it from him. Sometimes you can learn more somewhere else that will take you further in the future - and then you should have the courage to change.
  5. Self-confidence: Finally, Aleaxander proposes what he calls "acting like Alexander the Great": Simply confidently take your own direction instead of stumbling around ashamed.

Many tried around for above-average success?

Perhaps these often rather difficult biographies will end up being an above-average one Success out of here. Because doubts, failure and starting over are always part of success. Svenja Hofert also wrote something about this in her Xing post:

Exceptional, above-average success is usually based on a mixture of initial overconfidence and self-doubt. In my observation, he almost always builds on a contradictory personality. So the internal contradiction has System... That's why almost all people who are somehow "successful" have a little or a lot more drive than others.
