Is there anything wrong with me wanting to try everything but not stick to just one thing?

I can not tell you how much I wish I could live a few hundred thousand years, and try to experience everything there is.
I want to try every profession, live as different people and try to experience the world the way they see it.

I’ve tried a bunch of sports, different jobs, and life styles and it’s not that I get bored necessarily. Or maybe I do, I just get over it. I want to tackle the next thing. Once I learn or get the gist, and kind of know that I could be really good if I tried, then I don’t want to do it anymore since it’s too easy.

I love nothing more than to learn and discover new things, just the satisfaction or experiencing a high from learning itself. Hope that doesn’t sound too dumb. Obviously there isn’t enough time to try everything, and by even attempting multiple life styles/professions etc. I knowingly put myself in a situation where I can’t really become good at just one thing. So I suffer for it.

Do I need to make sacrifices and just choose one path? Do I need to talk to a shrink? Anyone else feel this way?
