You must have heard the saying: Jack of all trades, master of none. I want to believe you know that the popular saying is an abridged version. The one who wrote the piece said: A jack of all trades is a master of none but oftentimes better than a master of one.
Yes! The saying in itself touts the potential benefits of being versatile. The abridged version on the other hand, recommends otherwise: be a specialist, or be worthless.
Why is the abridged version popular, <<First Name>>? Social Construct? Irrespective of context, the narrative is the same concerning half-truth.
This is one of the reasons why due diligence is of utmost importance. Due diligence is not just a general investigation. It includes specific elements that can vary based on the situation and the nature of events. Due diligence protects your interest primarily.

Book(s) I Read this Week
THE HISTORY OF THE YORUBAS
From the Earliest Times to the Beginning of the British Protectorate
Patriotism made me read this masterpiece <<First Name>>. As a matter of fact, I am yet to complete the 742 - paged book that was first published in 1921 by the C.M.S (Nigeria) Bookshop Limited. The author, The Rev. Samuel Johnson who pastored the old Oyo empire accused educated Yoruba natives of been well acquainted with the history of England and that of Rome and Greece but of the history of their own country.
I was schooled on the origin of the tribes that make up the Yoruba race, their religion, Government and principles of land law. The manners and customs the founders of the Yoruba nation bequeathed their heirs will leave you in awe. The growth, prosperity, revolutionary wars, oppression and disruption encountered intrigued me.
You should read this <<First Name>>.
When anything grabs your attention, take note of it and engage in an healthy conversation concerning your ideas(I am here for you). Nobody will crucify you for taking notes <<First Name>>.
Quote of the Week
One repays a teacher badly if one remains only a pupil
Friedrinch Nietzsche said it.
It is important that you submit to the authority of mentors in order to learn from and absorb their power to the highest degree. This does not mean you should remain passive in the process. To actively lead your life is to repay your teacher.
Getting your feedback and hearing what you think is always a deal breaker <<First Name>>.
Until next Friday <<First Name>>,
