These days, you may have noticed that it’s not enough to be really good at just one thing.

In today’s world, life is a little richer and you are much more valuable to the wider world if you have a unique blend of skills and interests. Here’s an inspiring example…

That photo, like many others that we’ll show you today, was taken by Camille Seaman, a teller of stories through the lens of a camera.

You only have to look at her photography to see that she is also a composer and a philosopher. If her photographs were music, they would be tunes we could all connect with.

I suspect that the best place to understand what I mean by that is to check out her work (photographs and related stories) at a great new website called Maptia, which we will be telling you much more about in a future EWC article.

Here’s an image from another of Camille’s photographic journeys which we will feature in the future…

Do you have a passion you haven’t nurtured yet?

Want an interesting life? I’ve found that if you can develop an expertise in two or three areas that mesh in a novel and useful way – perhaps something completely new – you can carve out your own niche.

After you’ve finished today’s article, here’s another article we’ve done featuring a leap of innovative thinking. See if it strikes a spark for you:
