Why being a Jack of all Trades is important

 "Jack of all Trades, Master of none"

Was an incomplete statement invented by a lazy man to cause friction in your mind and limit you in the things you can achieve as a human operating your highest potential.

This singular statement has made a lot of people niche themselves down to poverty and mental inability, or something we call "Learned helplessness in Psychology".



You need to stretch yourself the heck out.

Explore your capabilities, run different businesses, learn different skills.

Speak different languages.
Work in different sectors and industries. Just stretch your mind.

That is the only way you get better and discover your true self.

This so-called jack of all trades was actually our decades old hero, William Shakespeare.

The complete phrase is “a jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.”

This was a compliment, not an advise to limit yourself or an insult to curb your impulsive obsession to become badass at so many things.

The man who first used this phrase ever, was "Robert Greene" in his 1592 booklet 'Greene's Groats-Worth of Wit' where he refers to William Shakespeare with this idiom, as a way of appraising him.

Williams Shakespeare was the playwright who was always found hanging around the theatres.

He would often help with the stage, the set and the costumes. He would remember lines and then try his hands at directing.

Being a Jack of Trades can actually help you in your journey of Self Discovery and to maintain Flexibility.

So, go out there and achieve as many great things as possible. Your mind is able.

Let no one lie to you. Explore!!!
