EP 25: Why Generalist > Specialist

Oct 6, 2017

This episode argues the core of my philosophy of generalism--the theme of the podcast itself, and the thesis of my upcoming book.

That argument is this: Forget being the best in the world. Instead, focus on getting good to great--or at least fairly competent--at a variety of different skills, then learn to combine those skills to form a competitive advantage and creative spirit.

In this episode, Jordan and I discuss how to become an expert-generalist, ironically enough, by being an effective "short-term specialist", or learning to rotate your learning emphasis.

We tie all this in to building strength, businesses, relationships, and more. Promise you're going to love it.
