Jack of all trades...Master of none

Post by tntkidtotntman on Wed Apr 09, 2008 6:58 pm

I think I have a problem. My problem is that I am interested in too many things, have the ability, the knowledge, and the desire to do all sorts of business. Stocks, Forex, Futures, Real Estate, Selling, Consulting, Teaching, Copywriting, and turn-key businesses. I am trying to focus but I have too much of a scatter brain and my energy is dispersed. I realize part of my problem is television and leads me to procrastinate many things. I need to figure out this thing.

I guess I feel I am good at everything. I may need further assistance in figuring out what the one thing is that I am really good at.

take a look at:

may not be exactly "How" but a decent starting point.

I had your same problem in the past.
I think that the key is to create good time management strategies.
I can give you some hints about how I solved my problems.
Steven Covey did a good book about time management skills called the "seven pillars of success".
I don't use all the strategies in the book but I strongly use the four quadrants he uses to classify the activities (they are based on different grades of urgency). It's good to start practice urgent and important activities and use the spare time to practice not urgent (and not important) activities (like television).

Probably you are a person with a very comprehensive knowledge because you have so many interests.
Many people say that knowledge is power, but on the contrary it is not.
As Napoleon Hill said, specialized knowledge is power.
Try to choose a particular field of interest and focus on it. Become a very good specialist.
Try to cultivate selective ignorance in the fields that are not your main interest.
Once you'll have a plan to monetize your specialized knowledge, I can tell you that you will achieve the success you deserve.
Create a precise vision to realize, a definite plan of action and follow it.
Good Luck! :wink:
