        Ye...same here. I have heard in my school days that it is better to be the king of one trade than being a jack of all. But, I think a person should have diverse skills. I love learning new things.

    Hi Rawat, in terms of hubs and in my personal/professional life I think I prefer to be both if that's possible. To be a jack of all trades but at the same time specialise in a few areas that I enjoy. For example I go to Karate classes in my spare time and on hubpages I am trying to specialise a bit more on a theme - but at the same time I do not want to put 'all my eggs in one basket' and I want to diversify so therefore, I believe that I am both:)
