A girl once asked me why I wouldn’t just focus on doing one thing. I could become really great at that one thing, she said. I couldn’t argue with her logic, but there were some things she didn’t understand which I didn’t bother explaining to her. I’ll share them with you here, though.

Being a generalist used to be frowned upon. You were a “jack of all trades, and master of none,” as the saying goes.

  1. One is the loneliest number.

    Point number 4 person who knows a lot about a lot, that’s the point. You have more to contribute, more value you can add. You can use this value to contribute to many different businesses creating multiple flows. Not just money, but it helps.

    Even if you work for a company, most prefer that you know multiple jobs so if they’re short or have to downsize they know they can cope with those who are left. It certainly helps knowing more. Where I work packing books the company would prefer you to know all the jobs in the warehouse. I know one job in the warehouse, the main line for picking books for dispatch, and this year it’s been tough as they are restructuring distribution so we’ve been short at the warehouse. I’ve been getting one or two days a week while others who know more jobs have been getting four/five days a week. It sounds bad for me, and it would be if I didn’t have other sources of income. The warehouse just supplements my income. You never want just one thing.

    Great topic Dre.
