Do You Need To Stick To One Job For The Rest Of Your Life?

If you haven’t heard his name yet, you’ll probably hear about him when one of the most popular movies, Thor: Ragnarok, releases. His talk on TED confirms once again: Taika Waititi is one of a kind.

This talk is so inspirational because Waititi is simply his own, humorous self. Among many profound things, he shared:

“I come from a background where people have said you have to have one single job and stick with it. Well, I don’t believe that. In this day and age I think people have things they want to express and you need to have a wide range of tools […] film happened to be an amalgam of all the things I was interested in.”

He’s not set on being a filmmaker for the rest of his life, film is simply something he happens to use right now.

To all artists who tend to worry a bit, be inspired by his talk, take away from it what applies to you, and have fun being creative!
