I met a variety of really smart people today.
Smart enough to make me shift my perspective of what ‘expert’ means. Each had a breath and depth of insight that could run circles around me, which I love. Being surrounded by so many smart people and ideas elevates your own. At least it does if you are willing to be the dumbest person in the room.
If you feel like you are one of the dumbest people in the room, you’re in the best place to learn and become better.
I also got a taste of what it means to narrow down your focus into one area and become a master of that domain.
These days you need both, mastery and knowledge if a multiple areas.
Which is what we are after here at The Renaissance Life.
But don’t feel like you have to follow that path. There’s always need for mono experts, mastery in a few, as well as general knowledge in everything.
Figure out which one you are most drawn to and go after it.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
