Should You Specialize or Be a Generalist? | Tim Ferriss

Following advice from Dilbert maker allowed Tim to excel in life. The advice is to be an expert in several rare disciplines. That is, being a Specialized Generalist.

Tim's advise is to learn the following by default, as an extremely useful addon:

  • Public Speaking
  • Negotiating
  • Writing

Winning even if I fail. Choosing projects that will give you the skills and relationships that can be used elsewhere. This is a win even if the project fails.
