The world only needs a few experts. Thanks to the internet anyone can get access and learn from these experts at any time.
Don’t get caught up in comparing yourself to those that dedicate their life to being the best at just one thing. Instead, focus on learning just enough.
Just enough to get your project done. Just enough to help your client overcome their problem. Just enough so that you can move on to solving more problems.
When you do this you’ll notice two things:
- You’ll get better at learning new things. Learning is a skill, the more you sharpen that skill, the more confident you become at trying new things.
- You’ll be better at solving problems, often in interesting ways. Instead of having a narrow focus that comes with being good at just one thing, you’ll be able to draw inspiration for your solutions from a range of backgrounds, topics and practices.
