What do you want to be when you grow up?

For a 5 year old, a policeman, a basketball player, a teacher, an artist, an astronaut.

The world is open to opportunity.

But as we get older, we are forced to narrow it down, be more realistic.

Pick a degree, a major, a discipline.

And then, specialise.

Constantly narrowing down to one thing that you have to choose to do and be for the rest of your life.

For some, this is the most exciting, and inspiring thing in the world.

And the specialist world we live in values and admires this commitment and dedication and focus.

For those at the other end of the spectrum, choosing one thing feels like a long and slow death.

But what if you didn’t have to choose?

What if you could do it all, and be it all?
