This saying refer to a person who has gained many skills, rather than gaining expertise by focusing on one.
People normally have 50,000-70,000 thoughts in a day. This is few of them
Working from home scenario- similar to the scenario when i moved from Sydney to Canberra and was planning to starting up a new business. (Multi Dynamic Canberra)
If i don’t have anything to do I do reading, listening, eating and sleeping and writing. (finding ways to learn more and more.)
What to do- The choice has always been a tough one.
Today, I would like to portray some of the behavior people tend to show if they know one thing they tent to express they know everything- my opinion knowing anything does not mean knowing everything. Jack of all gives you opportunity to socialise and express yourself in social functions, gathering and when having a chit-chat while drinking and having fun.
It seems possibly an easier and a quicker way out.
If i seek advise on Mortgage I will call mortgage broker, if i need advise for tax I will call tax agents. If i need advise for education and migration I will contact Migration and education expert. I will get advise from the people they are expert in their field (solicitor, conveyances, plumber, electrician)- to save time and energy rather than assuming and messing it over. If someone is closely working in the field for couple of years and make living out of it. Get an opinion from them- rather than assuming.
My tomorrow’s topic- ” Assuming” People assume too much and call themselves an expert of everything.
Being the master of something was, is and will be the long lasting method of doing things- which will lead you to success and help you achieve your end goal-your ultimate dream. Whether its getting a new job, setting up a business or having a good life.
Stay focused on one thing and master it .
I am not saying that one must be completely blank about other fields of interest. We should be learning other things along the way. when you meet people everyday.
So the answer according to me lies in being the best in your specific field of interest but should have the basic knowledge of other stuff as well.
The biggest problem people have these days they think they know everything and try to present themselves as an expert in everyway and every field.
Being in the same field would pose immense challenges but at the same time you will learn what it takes- fail big and start again. Failure is not a failure when you don’t give up. If you fail you will learn but if you give up- you won’t suceed- simple as that . Work on your craft and master it. Success is a long game.
When you are selling yourself, you are presenting a clear simple message. It may make sense for some people but not for everyone. You have to understand that not everyone will understand you. First you have to understand yourself- rest will follow.
Don’t try to please someone and seek others opinion to live your life. if someone has a problem with that, its their problem not you. It does not mean to hurt someone.
Live your life the way you want- make friends the way you like. Everyone is not your enemy but don’t forget not everyone is your friend.
“Life is a lesson you will learn when you are through.”
I love this song from the moon, sky and the whole universe.
This ain’t a song for the broken-hearten
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
You’re gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud
It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive (It’s my life)
