These blinks describe their particular problems, analyzes the causes and provides a powerful systematic approach to combat the curse.

  • Everyone who feels drawn to many fields but can’t choose one
  • Those who change their hobbies and jobs constantly and struggle to finish projects

Leonardo Lospennato is a Renaissance spirit who has studied engineering, worked for eBay and IBM, and written articles as a journalist. He now follows his calling as a modern-day luthier making custom electric guitars and basses.
