Ever find yourself in situations where you are expected to be a fountain of knowledge about all subjects under the sun? It’s been happening to me more and more often. The good thing is that you? end up knowing a bit about everything.? The other day, after buying Epson RX640, I went off hunting for somewhere to buy CD Labels. Turns out I found a great site called Buskerdoo CD Labels that do a whole selection of CD lables, DVD insets, CD sleeves and a whole bunch of other CD/DVD related paraphenelia. The good thing is, I won’t need to search for them again, because now I know.
There are downsides of course. This morning I went to the gym, for instance; and instead of doing my nomal workout I ended up fixing their computer. It was relatively straighforward, putting some antispyware on their box, running Windows Update and a few other clean up tasks, but it meant that I ended up playing with computers instead of pumping iron.
Sometimes I feel a bit uncomfortable in not having as much depth of knowledge in certain areas as I would like. It’s nice to be a specialist sometimes, being the “go to” guy about a particular topic. Still, the bottom line is I like knowing a bit about everything. Generalists rock!
