Let's Dissect my tagline - "Unapologetically, I do a little bit of everything."

Updated: Nov 15, 2023



I've heard it all…


Jack of all trades, master of none.


Market to everyone, you market to no one.


FOCUS. FOCUS. FOCUS.


Heck, I've even blogged about all the above topics and the importance of not trying to do everything, concentrating on a singular pursuit, and avoiding spreading yourself too thin by attempting to excel in every area.


Yes, but…


Over the years, I have discovered that …exploring, doing, dabbling, and getting involved in a little bit of everything is who I am, and there is nothing wrong with that.


Here's why I do a little bit of everything, why it's actually Sooo important to me … it's part of who I am and why I think it works for many… especially women, in my experience.


The original “Jack of all trades” was William Shakespeare himself, who was a Jack of all trades. He was always hanging around the theatre, helping out with costumes, the set, etc. The actual full phrase was “a jack of all trades is a master of none, but often times better than a master of one,” and is meant as a compliment but has been rephrased over the years to criticize those who are not specialists or experts in a specific area.


Becoming a specialist can really hone your skills in a specific field, but there's something uniquely enriching about being a generalist. As a generalist, you get to explore a diverse range of subjects, expanding your horizons and sharpening your ability to tackle a wide variety of challenges.


So why do I proudly do a little bit of everything?

  1. Makes me happy: First and foremost, it makes me genuinely happy. There's a certain joy in not limiting oneself to just one path. Variety spices up life, and for me, that variety is like a dash of excitement in each day.

  2. Makes me a better person: Dabbling in different areas enriches my personality. It allows me to relate to people from various walks of life, making me more empathetic and understanding.

  3. Allows me to have an impact on more people: When you know a little about a lot, you can connect with a wide range of people. This means I can impact and inspire individuals from different backgrounds.

  4. Benefit to my clients as much as myself: I'm adaptable to my clients' needs. Instead of being locked into a narrow perspective, I can offer solutions that draw from various domains. This versatility benefits both my clients and me.

  5. Bringing curiosity to work makes me better at my job: Being curious about diverse subjects means I'm always looking for innovative solutions. Curiosity fuels creativity, which enhances my problem-solving skills.

Dabbling and exploring and trying out new things offers you the opportunity to satisfy your curiosity, leading to fresh ideas, new perspectives, and exciting paths in your journey through life.


Now, it's essential to remember that focus is crucial when needed. The truth is that focus is an important driver of excellence. When I am closing a mortgage deal, writing an exam, or developing a new skill, I am laser-focused. But doing only one thing all the time is just plain boring.


I love travel. I love blogging. I am curious about health, exercise, mindset, psychology, entrepreneurship. The sky is the limit. Why on earth would I lower the limit? Life is too rich to be limited to just one flavor, don't you think?


Here's to doing a little bit of everything and loving it!


To your success and outrageous goals,


Tereza
