Jack of all trades!

It's impossible to know everything. But it's not easy to approve we know nothing about something, right?

In our culture, it is not very uncommon to find people who never approve they don't know. It's like a crime to not know. You have to know everything; for example about property costs, gold exchange, business, stock; everything. No one will approve that they don't understand much.

When I was a kid it always surprised me how one person can know everything! But it didn't take me long to find out they just pretend. They know one or two things but not everything. They are mostly jack of all trades and masters of none.

I'm not saying there is not anyone who doesn't know these things. Or it's impossible to have vast knowledge. But the thing is it's really hard to be the master of everything. You can have some knowledge but with that, it's not wise to guide someone on the basis of that small knowledge.

Yeah, I learned it a hard way that I should not take advice from those jacks as well as I should be more careful about my words. Because I also don't know much about many things.

I struggled a lot about this when I was a student. As a straight-A from the school level, I never used to approve that I don't know certain things and I never used to take any suggestions from other students or friends. I spend many times proving that I have in-depth knowledge whether I knew that I don't. It was like a toxic game. Later I found out how this affected me. Now I got myself out of this dissemble.

It's true that being a jack of everything is oftentimes better than being a master of one thing. It's a great advantage to have knowledge of many things, even if that's nothing to do with your business or life. But we have to understand that it comes with some negative impacts. It can shift our focus from what matters most and we may spend unnecessary time on unnecessary things.

Be comprehensive rather than superficial in whatever you are learning and doing in your life.

They literally have attempeted my murder and are trying to kill me with V2K and RNM. Five years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://ecency.com/fyrstikken/@fairandbalanced/i-am-the-only-motherfucker-on-the-internet-pointing-to-a-direct-source-for-voice-to-skull-electronic-terrorism ..... https://ecency.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem

You know I have some course mates that pretend to know everything when really they don't. They always want to do more than they should just to prove what they're not. Having to know everything to me is like stressing the brain more than it should be. I prefer to know a good amount of things than to pretend to know everything. People have areas of specification and yes.. it's good to be advanced in knowledge but I don't think there are people that know everything especially when it isn't their area of specification.

Spot on. We are even likely to ruin so many things along the way with the ever increasing pressure we are piling on ourselves. No man knows it all. No man is an island of knowledge. We know in parts and we know more as we grow more when we are open to learning. Learning and growing is a daily and continuous affair.

I too agree with your statement. We are not good at everything, no one can and it's totally fine. Accepting this truth and focusing on what we are good at is more important than trying to put our hands on everything.
Thanks for your words. :)

Exactly. Focusing on what we are good at saves us the wasted efforts on others things. We are to build capacity first and where else to build it than on things we are good at first.

Thank you and I am happy you enjoyed it.

Yep! But some would disagree with their life.

Absolutely. Every man for himself, I guess. Life would always find a way to teach them the hard way.

I have been there, as I have said. It is sure stressful and a bad investment of time. Rather we should focus on what we are good at. It's always great to have a good amount of knowledge on things but you can't be an expert on everything, that's the truth we must accept.
Thanks for your words. :)

Dear @rem-steem, we need your help!

The Hivebuzz proposal already got important support from the community. However, it lost its funding a few days ago and only needs a few more HP to get funded again.

May we ask you to support it so our team can continue its work this year?
You can do it on Peakd, ecency, Hive.blog or using HiveSigner.
https://peakd.com/me/proposals/199

Your support would be really helpful and you could make a difference.
Thank you!

I believe in exploring, I see no point in investing all your time in to just one damn thing, when life has so much to offer.

Yes, there are one or two aspects and some things that get more attention and effort when compared to the rest, yet they all play a significant role in my life and lifestyle.

I have been there and that's very draining for me. Maybe the more we grow up, we start to think differently.
What I came to realize is, that it's always great to feed our brain but investing us in everything takes away our focus. It happened so many times to me. Still, I struggle to avoid things and put my efforts into what matters most. Like I do study random sh*t in the middle of the night for no reason. hahaha...
You better wisely choose what you are up to :)

It is somewhat true, you shouldn't get involved in every damn thing and activity around you, not a 100% at least. That's why I split up my time and "investment", the bigger portions goes behind my top and most prioritized activities at the moment, and the amount keeps on getting smaller as we keep going down the list.

I do switch up the list every now and then, just to keep it all "fresh". The list isn't that big either, it's a fairly small list of activates and hobbies, which even the average person can focus on and manage.

Good to hear you have a good grip on this. And sounds like you don't fall into the category of what I meant to say. :)
Enjoy :) :)

This is so true. We sometimes see life as a way to make a statement, to show others we are better while losing sight over important things. It's okay not to know everything but it's important to be open to know more things. Argument is an exchange of foolishness while discussion is an exchange of ideas...it all depends on how open we are to it.

You are right, we live in the world where not knowing things is frowned at and they make you feel like you are not even serious with your life when we all have our strong suits. We have all lost sight of important things while trying to impress others by proving a point.

I enjoyed this lovely post, my friend.

Argument is an exchange of foolishness while the discussion is an exchange of ideas.

That's what it is.
I wish we all could understand what matters most so we can focus on things that can improve our lives in many ways.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It helped me clear up some opinions as well.
