Is it normal for 8 year olds to like to do everything?

How long does this phase last?

Mine did, I didn't see it as much of a problem. Does s/he want to do things that s/he shouldn't?

Nothing wrong with liking what you are doing!
They will find what they like the best by trying all sorts of things.

I don't know that it is a phase. I still like to do lots of things in order to find out what I really prefer... and I am pushing 60!

Like to do everything, as in agreeable?

My youngest was that way,but at 9.5 has become fairly contrary.

Do you mean your 8 year old is super active? Or into things he/she shouldn't be? Doing dangerous things?

What, exactly, are you worried about? It will be much easier to give advice if you let us know what your concerns are...
