An Operative of All Skillsets is a Master of None

VSSL Compass on The Mekong Delta, Vietnam /// VinjatekA “Jack of all trades, master of none” refers to those who expand their skillsets too broadly and beyond their capacity, mastering no skills.

The most important skill you need is the ability to learn how to change and grow.

In both intelligence and military professions, there are specialists, not just in rank but for distinct directives. An expertise level of understanding of a set of relevant skills to best perform specific tasks.

If memories is what makes up a human being, then skills is what makes up a covert operative.

So it seems to stand to reason to learn as many skillsets as humanly possible. On paper it looks good, but in practice it tends to be counterintuitive.

That is unless you’re an extraordinarily gifted individual, but most of us are not, myself included.

When factoring in time, we are severely limited by our cognitive and physical abilities. We can only learn so much, let alone master those skills we learn.

It’s better to master a few skills than to dabble in many – it’s a matter of potent versus diluted power.

This doesn’t just pertain to soldiers and operatives in the field, but to civilians in everyday life and work.

Don’t be a Jack of all trades as a master of none.

Master and gain expertise by focusing on one.
