Generalist

Being a generalist can be both a blessing and curse. I thought I only struggled with “imposter syndrome”. In trying to find my niche as an individual I struggled to find that one thing that I am good at , that I would want to amplify and focus on. There are way too many things.
In a world of “find your niche”, I am a generalist.

In other words “Jack of all trades”

“A jack of all trades” is often a compliment for a person who is good at fixing things, and has a very good broad knowledge. They may be a master of integration, as such an individual who knows enough from many learned trades and skills to be able to bring the individual’s disciplines together in a practical manner. This person is a generalist rather than a specialist.”

Never mind that people use Jack of all traders derogatorily.

“Generalist” a word I only just learned, – thanks Bamo- .

What if being a generalist is actually my niche, we all can’t be just one thing! For someone with such a short attention span, I would be bored out of my mind if I only ever did one thing, if I ever only focused on one thing. 
So what if my skills and talents are all over the place, and I’m all over the place, what if the best version of me is best expressed by my “all-over-the-placeness”

“I’m unscripted” ,that’s what my first bio on Facebook read, it’s a wonder that I would try to put myself in a box or fit a into a mould.
