"Refuse to Choose" with Eisa Davis and Barbara Sher

I absolutely love this Gap commercial featuring Eisa Davis. In the clip, she explains her deep need to engage ALL of her passions and it really struck a chord with me, because I like to think that I operate the same way. 

A few weeks ago, I came across the book "Refuse to Choose" after it was recommended in an interview I read on one of my daily blog readings. Curious about the title, I previewed the first few chapters on Google Books and I instantly loved it so much that I ordered it online. I haven't finished it yet, but so far it details ways to get things done for people who have a lot of creative needs and talents (like me and Eisa Davis), whom author Barbara Sher describes as "scanners". I plan on doing a full book review pretty soon, but I figured many of you readers may identify with this notion of needing to do many things at once.

Have you been told to just "choose one thing?" Are you currently living a life full of different occupations and hobbies? I'm interested to hear some outside perspectives on this. Share your comments below...


  1. I feel like I need to go get that book! I want to do hair, crochet, be a teacher, a nutritionist and try out working in a children's hospital. In the future, I am determined to incorporate each one of these things into my life. I'm applying to the Peace Corps (hopefully to do primary school teacher training) which will help me get into Teach for America (to do more primary school teaching, but in the US). After that is done I will go back to grad school, but I am not sure if it will be for nutrition or something education related. If it is not for nutrition then I will find another way to incorporate my love for healthy living and exercise. Eventually I would like to go to cosmetology school and maybe teach proper care for natural hair as a side job.

  2. After reading your post, and then watching the video, I bought the book. I got it on Amazon.com for my kindle app on my iPhone because I just knew I would want to have it with me everywhere. Let me say it's been a big help already! Barbara Sher shows how to help people like us get it together. Thank you!
