Specialize, specialize, specialize: we are pounded with why this matters. From 7-year-old kids committing to football to the world of entrepreneurship and skill acquisition —we're being told to go deeper, not wider.
But is this advice actually valuable, or is it setting us up for an array of unforeseen consequences?
Enter the latest Academy guest, a New York Stimes Bestselling author of The Sports Gene and now his latest book, Range: Why Generalists Triumph In A Specialized World —David Epstein.
David is a pure academic and researcher who wanted to answer this question once and for all, and the answers may surprise you.
In this episode, you're going to learn the power of acquiring multiple skills, why it's never too late for you to get started, the surprising age of the average start-up founder, why being an expert creates blind spots and tons more.
