When I was coming up with the ‘About Me’ section for my blog, I wrote “Jane of all trades, master of none”. And I think that’s how I saw myself.
I believe we are judged by what we’ve done, not who we are. Go to any social situation and the first question asked, when someone meets you is, “What do you do?”
I’ve always wanted to answer, “I do a lot… you’d be amazed.” But so far I just give the answer that’s expected.
Recently, my husband suggested I change my ‘About Me’ section to read, “Jane of all trades, master of one”. By master of one, he meant that I happen to master whatever the latest ‘one trade’ I’m working on is. He pointed out that I have mastered many things, I do it rather quickly and then I move on.
And he’s right. I have mastered a lot, and continue to do so. I bet you have as well.
So what is it you do?
