We get to re-write the rules
the new economy demands generalists
Specialisation no longer rules. Automation and expert systems can now cost effectively perform most of the activities of specialists. The economy needs right brain thinkers who can coordinate activity and make decisions.
jack of all trades, master of many
In the past we've been hesitant to communicate the diversity of our skills for fear of diminishing our value and credibility. Blurring our brand. Don't let an outdated proverb hold you back any longer. Reprogram yourself and start embracing it as the endearing term it is.
you can design your ideal lifestyle
We are adaptable, resourceful, and self-reliant creatures, which allows us to purposefully craft how we spend our lives. Want to travel the world and work for yourself? Find ways to monetise what you're passionate about.
f*ck labels , don't pigeonhole yourself
Labels are used to classify and communicate cultural stereotypes. They affect our self-perception and behaviour and can harmfully become self-limiting. Focus on your story, not a string of words to communicate who you are.
be confident in your competence
We have misunderstood our true nature, humans are natural generalists; at our best when we turn our minds to many things. It’s more than just a few elite humans who can do more than one thing well.
doing less ≠ more focus
Adding new activities to our plates - things we enjoy doing and have an an aptitude in - gives us new sources of energy. Even when we're exhausted we’ll be exhilarated.
Find the intersections between your many passions and create an integrated life.
Many of us dream of becoming radical generalists, others consider extreme de-specialisation a nightmare. The ideal is not to be a specialist or a generalist, but develop the ability to see new, better ways of doing things; to question accepted wisdom either from expertise in one area or inspiration from many.
Success is when we develop our own approach, moving away from the traditional inefficient methods towards a curiosity, passion and resilience driven mode of living - becoming a true zealous mind.
