There’s been a lot of pushback lately against the idea of mastery, choosing one thing and putting everything you’ve got into it.
Mastery, it seems, has become almost a dirty word. Why choose just one or two things to master, when your interests span four or five or 10 or 20? Why not just do them all? Isn’t that a legitimate way to both feel good and contribute to the world? Isn’t being a jack of all trades, master of none the type of person who is most in demand these days anyway?
For some, maybe. But, for many others, not so much. I wonder…
Is the pervasive refusal to say no to many thing and strive for mastery in one more about fabulosity or FOMO?
That’s what we’re talking about on today’s GLP Riff.
