Master All Trades

The old adage, “Jack of all trades, master of none,” has been updated; it’s now, “Jack of all trades, master of all trades.”

Specific, specialized, select knowledge and experience quickly lose value. In the New Reality, there will be a need for specialists, but fewer of them and less often.

What does this mean for you?

  • Broaden your knowledge base – now!
  • Continually add to your list of competencies.
  • Get good (not necessarily great) at several different skills.
  • Make your name as a utility player.
  • Build a level of ability in multiple areas.

The New Reality requires building comfort and some proficiency in many functions – quickly and continuously. “Mastery” in the New Reality is different – instead of 10 out of 10 in a certain area, it’s more like 7 out of 10 in a lot of areas.

Today’s technology makes this possible . . . turning beginners into near experts in a flash. Not every profession, but enough areas to make it a trend today – and a truth tomorrow.

How to Become a Jack of All Trades and a Master of All Trades:

  • Learn what you want to learn.
  • Try what you want to try.
  • Look for new areas to learn and try.
  • Expand your thinking, knowledge, and skill sets
