Wonderfully insightful. I feel as if a generalists role in the marketplace had been marginalized and drowned out admist the constant roar of specialization being the only means to professional and economic success in an overcrowded job market. Coming into one’s own as a polymath is not a planned endeavor, but at the behest of continually feeding a curiosity and hunger for knowledge and skill. The term “jack-of-all-trades” has always been tinged with negativity as it assumes a generalist cannot fulfill mastery of any skill, opting to be just functional across the board. That could not be further from the truth.
