Re: Experience should guide, not constrain

I think the phrase "Jack of all trades, master of none" has a lot to answer for. It seems that what started out as an insult reserved for deserving individuals has become something people believe to be generally true - ie that it's impossible to be particularly good at more than one thing.


Interestingly the original phrase was "Jack of all trades, master of none, though ofttimes better than master of one" (thanks Wikipedia), which is the complete opposite sentiment of that attached to the shortened version today.
