At one point, for several years I had a particular destiny and singular focus, and things seemed great. It took several years after having and then losing(?)/moving on from that focus to figure out what to do next. I can currently relate to not only your general thoughts about wanting to do everything, but even specifically to many of them including math, physics, publishing, ancient languages, computer science, philosophy, etc. The tough part is that I always feel like the "job" I want to have hasn't been invented yet. It's taken a while, but it sure seems fun searching for it now that I've embraced the search. If you do ever figure things out and the "company" has another opening, do let me know...

@seanmcarroll For physics it's not always about being smart, the best are creative too. Jiggle is definitely creative

Sounds as if the Hands text is in the vein of the growing Big History movement, though I doubt that he uses the term to describe his work as such.

I'm about halfway through physicist Sean Carroll's new book The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, & the Universe Itself (Basic, May 2016 http://amzn.to/22teEyD), which is very good. So far it covers the build up of modern physics laced with more philosophy of science than most popular science books include and is an interesting read.
