How to Get Rich - Be a Generalist

Have you ever wanted to know everything about everything ?

How about to know everything about something ?

Well, for most it is best to know something about a lot of things !

Why Be a Generalist

The reason that it is best to be a Generalist is that it gives you a wide base of knowledge upon which to build for the future. To know something about a lot of things will make it much easier for you to spot deceptions and to avoid the many questionable opportunities that you will face in everyday life.

To know something about a lot of things will allow you to protect yourself and your financial future from whatever the future may bring. It will also allow you to hire an expert in an area and still know enough to challenge or question any advise given. It will make it easier to maintain control over your future financial decision making, which is a must for building wealth.

Don't Be A Know it All

Never be afraid to admit that you don't know something. Nobody really likes someone who thinks they know everything about everything. This is simply not possible and everyone knows that.

It is much better to be open minded and not be afraid to learn new things. Learn from those who have more knowledge in a particular area than you. Never be afraid to ask a lot of questions, for that is how we learn.

Not Too Much Detail

To learn about a particular area, it is best to get a general understand rather than getting too bogged down in all the details and technicalities of a subject. This will allow you to focus your knowledge growth on many areas and not just one. When you need more detailed analysis in an area, you can either consult with an expert or hire an expert outright to do this work for you. This will be much more efficient use of your valuable time.

This blog site is actually designed to do just that. In other words, it is designed to give you just enough information to hopefully understand a topic without getting you too bogged down in the details of it. At least, that is my goal.

By being a generalist in many areas and an expert in none, will enable you to be open to new opportunities and not be tied down to old ways that simply no longer work. Be open to the future.

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
