Being a well rounded individual1 min read

I believe that being a well rounded individual is one of the highest goals you can achieve as a human. That might sound hyperbolic1 but I think it’s important to be able to see, feel and do multiple things that all benefit each other.

Dabble a little in this, find out a little about that. Take away some lessons, apply them somewhere else. Stuff like that.

This does not mean I think you should do everything imaginable. Just do everything that makes sense for you as an individual. What do you enjoy doing most? What are things you can do that might benefit that? How can those things strengthen each other?

Questions I try to ask myself regularly.

For me, this means that I have photography as my main thing. Now I dabble a little in this writing thing as well. At the same time I still apply lessons from my psychology studies to my daily life and how I do my business. My interest in psychology is part of the reason I even started writing these Monologues.

The writing aids my thinking, which gives me a better sense of self, which supports my photography. Everything compliments each other.

But you know, it’s not all that deep all the time.
