Eagerness to do a lot of things at once. It’s an ambition many of us struggle with: being good at many things but not perceived as an expert with any one of them. You feel like you’re never really able to get traction.
Do you often pick up something to learn and end up gaining just enough knowledge to be dangerous?
I believe there are two kinds of Jack of All Trades: a permanent Jack of All Trades (you don’t want this one!), and an intermittent Jack of All Trades. The latter is a result of the journey to becoming a master—a good thing.
I want to talk about how to know the difference so you can determine which one you are. You’ll find out if you’re on your way to mastery or simply floundering about in the novice world of mediocre proficiency.
