Refuse to Choose! book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Don't know what to do with your life? Drawn to so many things. And one called Refuse To Choose (or What Do I Do When I Want To Do Everything? in the UK) to show you that you do not have too many interests! You are. Refuse to Choose: A Revolutionary Program for Doing Everything You Love · Wishcraft - How to Get What You Really Want · I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew .

The solution for this is called Scanner Daybook. This is a blank book devoted to what you do each day.

It works as your go-to place for capturing your best ideas and also the tangents that pull you off those. Also, this a self-study book where you loose without any restrictions to learn, design or imagine whatever you like. This is your version of the Leonardo da Vinci notebooks.

The da Vinci notebooks are an excellent model for a Scanner Daybook. The farther you follow your fancy in your Daybook pages, the clearer your mind will be. Two important remarks are that no follow-up is necessarily required and the book is not for grocery lists or general journaling, just anything related to being a Scanner. The author recommends us to write up something in it every day for, at least, the next week or two to stick to the habit.

She also suggests us to get a nice notebook like those we are almost afraid to write in. Make sure there are no lines on the pages and give yourself a lot of space to write on.

The larger each page and the thicker the book, the better it will be. So, if you want to value yourself and reduce anxiety, make sure you have your Scanner Book.

The author calls them Time Sickness, a state of mind frequently in which your whole sense of time is compacted into the present moment, and you forget that tomorrow exists. That translates into the belief that if you put off doing anything you love, it will be lost forever.

And when you love more things than you can do now, it creates panic. Nothing drives away the Time Sickness better than a Calendar. The best kind is big enough to show everything you hope to do for the next few years all at once.

You can make it yourself right now. Find a large sheet of paper or tape some ordinary-size blank sheets together and with a colored marking pen, divide it into six large squares, one for each of the next six years.

Why six? Anything less could worry you by making you feel hurried. Anything higher would be hard to understand. Six years seems to be right for Scanners.

Think of every project you long to do.

Figure out which ones you might be able to do soon and which ones can wait. What if new project ideas come up? The Interest Index Binder help you keep track of all these ideas. Keep the big list of all your interests in one three-ring binder. The goal is to keep all new investments in one place, like an index. At first, a Calendar and a Binder may not seem like a very formidable set of tools, but they will give you a good start to manage your Time Sickness. Usual jobs rarely meet their need for variety.

That triggers a widespread reaction among Scanners, which is the fear of commitment. It's very understandable where this fear comes from, though it still has drawbacks in many cases like lack of money and experience as the commitment phobia leads us to decline most job opportunities.

How to find a middle path in this context then? She first used it in a workshop, and it was so successful at overcoming commitment phobia that she now uses it with many of her Scanner coachees. The letters stand for Learn, Try, Teach and Leave. This might take two more months. Anyways, if you do not find a job within this frame, you can always do freelance or consulting work which by their very nature are project-based.

Above all, the truth is that Scanners need to learn, to invent, and to tinker with things. Rarely will a Scanner be happy sticking around to turn the switches on and off or keep the system running. To require execution and maintenance of Scanners is not a good use of their ability. Talent is hard to find. A smart boss knows and respects it. Even though Scanners and sad people might have a hard time choosing something to do, their motives are of a different nature.

Scanners do not select out of the fear of missing out. Differently, depressed people do not choose because they do not feel the desire to do anything.

Likewise, Scanners are mistaken for people with Attention Disorder Disease. Being the author both a Scanner and diagnosed with ADD, she tells out of her personal experience that they are not the same. Although both can feel stuck, their reasons for this are different too. Having an ADD attack produces a mind fog that prevents people from remembering what they're doing. Scanners are not all equal. They are split into two groups, namely Cyclical and Sequential.

The former is defined by never repeating a subject, that is, Sequential Scanners are always moving on and on to the next field. Conversely, the latter is known by getting back to the major areas of interest previously explored.

Cyclical Scanners tend to explore in cycles, what so the name. Specifically, inside each of these two big groups, there is a dozen of subdivisions that you can relate to reading the full book. Scanners are the victims of a fashion change in history. Until the technology race with the Soviet Union after World War II changed our views, the kind of people now labeled as Scanners was admired.

When Russia launched Sputnik, the first-ever satellite to be launched into space, the United States went into shock. Immediately US resources were devoted to catching up to and passing Russian technology, and everything else became secondary. University faculties turned into specialized training centers; science and technology—the realm of specialists—reigned supreme.

Feminists for Life

Departments of literature, the humanities, even history were seen as irrelevant luxuries. And with that decline in respect came a radical change in the stature of Scanners. All that context has imposed a psychological pressure on Scanners, not to mention the problems they already have by their very nature. Let's comment about them and offer some approaches to tackle them down. With the exception of learning project management techniques, the only thing Scanners need is to reject the conventional wisdom that says they are doing something wrong and claim their true identity.

Almost every case of low self-esteem, shame, frustration, feelings of inadequacy, indecisiveness, and inability to get into action disappeared merely the moment they understand that they were Scanners and stopped trying to be somebody else.

Scanners are curious because they are genetically programmed to explore everything that interests them. You need to roll up your sleeves and direct your energies toward creating an environment for yourself that will support you precisely as you are.

As a Scanner you must suffer from an excess of ideas, right? Your mind is restless about coming up with new things, even crazy stuff you didn't know you were capable of thinking of.

Many times, the consequence is that you get a lot anxious and eventually stop valuing your ideas as they were always flush in. Not valuing your ideas is terrible for your self-worth, so you must appreciate them even if some of them do not turn out to be great. The very act of considering your explorations worth keeping track of begins to change everything you ever thought about yourself. This is a blank book devoted to what you do each day.

It works as your go-to place for capturing your best ideas and also the tangents that pull you off those. Also, this a self-study book where you loose without any restrictions to learn, design or imagine whatever you like.

This is your version of the Leonardo da Vinci notebooks. The da Vinci notebooks are an excellent model for a Scanner Daybook. The farther you follow your fancy in your Daybook pages, the clearer your mind will be.

Two important remarks are that no follow-up is necessarily required and the book is not for grocery lists or general journaling, just anything related to being a Scanner. The author recommends us to write up something in it every day for, at least, the next week or two to stick to the habit.

Scanners have problems with time. The author calls them Time Sickness, a state of mind frequently in which your whole sense of time is compacted into the present moment, and you forget that tomorrow exists. That translates into the belief that if you put off doing anything you love, it will be lost forever. And when you love more things than you can do now, it creates panic.

Anything less could worry you by making you feel hurried. Anything higher would be hard to understand. In fact, it puts people like me in good company with the likes of Aristotle, Ben Franklin, and Leonardo da Vinci. It's perfectly okay to be an artist, writer, musician, mathematician, and inventor.

Go ahead and be a chef, painter, photographer, and a physics teacher. You shouldn't have to choose one thing to stick with for the rest of your life. You really can do everything. At least, that's the message of the book.

Once you acknowledge that you are a Scanner, and that it's okay to be different, then you learn about different types of Scanners. The author acknowledges that everyone will fit at least two of the Scanner types she lists. And that's where the real strength of this book lies.

Once you've identified what types you are, you can learn ways to make yourself more efficient, and career options that will keep you motivated and excited.

This is a little humorous, because I've often said I have too many things "on my plate," when in reality that is my greatest strength: the ability to manage several projects simultaneously.

The most surprising thing I found was in the Serial Master category, which I figure is a smaller portion of my Scanner abilities. But even that small part of me explained something that I hadn't figured out yet.Are You a Serial Specialist?

The goal is to keep all new investments in one place, like an index. She realized her kids were happy because she was happy.

The Scanner's Revelation

They are split into two groups, namely Cyclical and Sequential. What if new project ideas come up? Barbara Sher gives clear, simple, practical advice and direction for all of us that can't choose one thing, one path, one career, one hobby, and that is: Plain and simple, whether it stays at a flower for 2 seconds or 20 seconds, we understand it needs that amount of time to get what it came for, which is the Reward.
