I’ve read a funny story recently , it may make you cringe…
A mother asked a question on a forum. Her daughter used to be a straight -A student who spent most her days at home . After high school however , she changed drastically .
She started going out with her friends , playing tennis and visiting theatres …
The original question was : What’s wrong with my daughter ?
… When her daughter finally had a chance to live a “normal” life , instead of being happy about it , the mother started worrying…
For some reason , we’re told that we can only choose one thing. Be a specialist rather than a jack of all trades , master of none..
There are several disadvantages of this “focus on one thing” mindset . The most obvious one is that you will become boring as hell , if you just focus on one thing and neglect the other paths.
It’s not just about being boring , it’s about being bored as well.. Doing the same thing again and again leads to burn out .
Yeah , focusing can accelerate your process to ” success” , but we all know that it’s more about the journey.. Is “success” why you live ?
If you have some spare time , discover alternatives… More alternatives , the better .
I’ve had friends who did a bunch of different things , they never succeeded academically . But they played video games , did martial arts , chess , football , the piano , did magic tricks much better than me .(At this point , I’m talking about 2 people.) Not to mention , they were more outgoing.
You can’t really earn money with these activities , but you choose .
