Is it better to the best at one thing, or to be "average" at many things?

    Is it better to the best at one thing, or to be "average" at many things?

    Can a balanced life be successful?

    I think it's important to try your hardest and do your best at anything you set your sights to.  No one is every truly "the best" someone can always do whatever it is better or differently.  I think an idea of perfectionism or feeling like one has to be "the best" is how many people give up on dreams before they ever get started... just be the best you can be and give your ideas a shot.

    I have known a lot of people who strive to be average in many different fields. They come across as very dull to me. I think people who are very good at one thing are very interesting.

    I am a jack of many trades and finally learning to master one.  It is good to know many things however I believe once the person tunes in with God and find out their purpose and focus on it they will be the best
