“Jack of all trades, master of none”. People often use this figure of speech when they want the common man to understand the reality of life. I’ve always been curious to go in depth of things and according to my analysis, hard work and determination are the dominating factors that can help us in becoming “Master of most trades”. There are loads of instances in life when we fear failure, but overcoming that fear makes us strong and confident.
I have an aggressive approach towards life. I like to challenge myself by setting difficult but achievable targets. This approach helps me in doing multiple things at the same time. Today’s generation is often regarded as “tech savvy”. The prime reason behind this notion is that all of us are equipped with so many gadgets as compared to our predecessors.
From entertainment to studies, there are infinite dedicated gadgets for every field of life. iPads have replaced books and we can thrill ourselves with 3 dimensional movies and surround sound systems. Cars can park themselves and paddle shifters have replaced manual gear shafts. One can shop online in minutes as compared to hours spent on foot. All these services help us in saving time. I feel blessed to be a part of this generation as I like to stay updated and that too when I am on the move.
Our generation is usually occupied with so many things that multitasking is the lender of the last resort. For instance, while working on computer we have so many windows open at the same time, surprisingly most of them are not even remotely related. While working out, we can watch television, listen to songs, check our heart rate, blood pressure all at the same instance.
According to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the maximum point we can reach in our lives is “Self actualization’ i.e. the feeling of achieving everything we can. I am not sure whether I would reach that stage ever but my approach towards life is that we can never get enough, there is always a room for improvement. This approach has helped me so far in improvising myself in every walk of life. Hence, the main point is to enlighten people that there is no end to our potential, it’s just that we underestimate ourselves.
