Is this the right era to be the jack of all trades
Yeah, it might sound absurd if said in public a few decades ago. But, with people now getting more mature than ever, it is likely to be acceptable in our society. First of all, let me tell you what it is. It literally means that a person might keep generalized not personalized knowledge of many fields. He might not be a specialist but, still better than a person who has no idea of other fields and is just specialized in one particular field.we are going to give real-life instances to make you comfortable with the phrase ‘jack of all trades’.
Let us see what has changed from before :
A few decades ago, we all had that mentality to study, get a degree, get a Ph.D., and do that thing till we die.we were living for a single goal. even, if we would have wanted to try something extra, we were either criticized by our own or never had that courage ourselves.so, what has changed now.
The changes :
First thing is, the brighter side of social media that is, we can share at the very moment what we are currently doing. with that, people are knowing each other a lot and the rate of hypocrisy is decreasing with proper human interaction.people have even tracked a bomb via social media once the terrorists have hinted just a little about location. imagine you are being kidnapped, you certainly can give a single text to your friend and with the help of social media, you will be tracked in minutes. All I want to say is that people are going to listen to you and will give you some value, a helping hand. Many of us have a long-distance friend on social media which we have never met in person.so, to socialize and try a few things side by side, learning about few things is not going to be useless.
Real life instances :
One of my very own colleagues, a very nice guy in fact or should I say, most of my colleagues always lines in front and gives me their free wisdom regarding how I just should die being a medico and how it is a sin to try new things side by side. Yes, it is all right if you are getting to do something which you have always dreamed of and are actually doing it as well. still, in our era, it is wrong not to try other things. even, businessmen go out there and try various sectors, then why it is wrong for us to do that. of, course not every one of us is lucky to find passion by the age of 19. Also, due to family pressure, we might do something which wasn’t our first choice or it might be that we have matured late or we might want to fly like birds. That’s what this era is about, freedom.
We might grow as a person. Shakespeare and Leonardo da Vinci have done this ages ago. they are one of the well-known jack of all trades.
Adaptable, Leadership skills, confident:
Of, course it is going to make you much adaptable and when one thing is not working, you might benefit from the others going side by side.
You might start a revolution, create something new which will be beneficial for society and might influence others in doing so.
It is going to make you confident and afterwards, you just can’t stop.
You will be happier than ever having explored yourself and the world to the full, reaching your potential.
Human Psychology :
Our mind loves the thrill, gets bored frequently and even the most stable guy in our squad gets bored sometimes. That hidden desire to not be able to change and try new things causes stress and stress is the mother of all psychological issues. Also, there won’t be much for us to get depressed. let us all try new things and be ‘jack of all trades’.
Other Changes with example :
A 16-year-old video game player has just won 3 million dollars, which we just can not earn in many years combined practicing the one field we have mastered. Many people are bringing their thoughts on paper, creating a website, blogging, and creating their own youtube channel. The world has certainly changed for sure and we should come ahead and be a part of that!
