Jack of all trades and master of none.
Or so goes the saying. The question is… is it better to be a master at one or a jack of all trades? This has been a long standing debate in our family (extended family included) with each one of us flipping sides (back and forth, forth and back) as time goes on.
It’s not easy to decide this. However, something that both sides have pointed out is that when you are a jack of all trades, you have more adventures, more experiences.
On the other hand, your work isn’t as great as a master of one. For example, if you bounce around in different writing genres, you will never be the J. R. R. Tolkien.
I did something completely new (I guess making me a Jack of all Trades?) and put together a little (and generalized) infographic of the differences between Jack of all Trades and Master of Ones.
Where do you stand on this… discussion?
