Equipped With Knives, Yet None Are Sharp?!

“Equipped with knives, yet none are sharp.”

This quote shows exactly how my life seems to be playing out at the moment, and with having to choose a career path coming up relatively quickly, it is becoming more and more pressing to become well-comfortable and talented in one area or subject. The problem with that is I seem to be pretty adequate in everything, but not particularly

talented in any one thing. I would say I am relatively sufficient in writing, photography, visual arts. I’m even an adequate swimmer! The problem with this is, how am I supposed to win the race, if I’m trying to swim two different directions at the same time? Most people have one area or specialty that they would be perfectly content in pursuing as a career, an area of expertise that they are already adequate in, and are improving constantly in. Even during school, I have been doing relatively well in every course. (Knock on wood!) While this might be a good thing, it does not help me in deciding what exactly I’d like to do in life.

their lives.

So, I have one question: Does the saying go “Jack of trades, master of none.” or “Jack of trades, master of none, though oftentimes better than master of one.”? I’m really hoping the latter is true, because at this point, keeping my options open seems to be the best route.

      1. As for now, I’m just trying to improve as much as I can in each hobby! And maybe in the future some of them will go hand in hand so that I can use both to do something more professional. Or I might have to find one that I enjoy more and just continue it! I think keeping my options open seems to be the best thing for me at the moment, but we’ll see where the future takes me!
