What should you stop doing?

Michael Jordan shouldn't play baseball. Bill Gates shouldn't design shoes. Paris Hilton shouldn't teach a university course. Michael Jackson shouldn't fight fires. Howard Dean shouldn't sing. Bill O'Reilly shouldn't box. Mike Tyson shouldn't manage your finances. We get so caught up in doing so many things, when really, what we should be doing is asking ourselves: what should we stop doing? The world doesn't value jacks-of-all-trades. They don't glorify jacks-of-all-trades. They don't make movies, or build festivals around jacks-of-all-trades.

Specialists vs. Jacks-of-all-trades

Jacks-of-all-trades never build on their strengths. They don't build momentum on what they've learned in the past. They're not great at one thing. Good at many things, yes; but, that's it. The world instead values specialists. Specialists who know their strengths. Equally, specialists who know their weaknesses. Specialists who say NO to opportunities that don't fit their values, or their compasses. Specialists become leaders. They move world economies. They change the way the world thinks. A hundred years from now, who will remember you? For what?
