Do You Have These Core Human Skills?


in Learning Optimization

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”Robert A. Heinlein

一个人应该能够换尿布、策划战争、杀猪、开船、设计房子、写十四行诗、平衡帐本、砌墙、接脱臼的骨头、安慰濒临死亡的人、服从命令、发号命令、协同合作、独立行动、解数学方程、分析新问题、铲粪、编程、做美味佳肴、善与拼搏、勇敢地死去。只有昆虫才专业化。Robert A. Heinlein

Scott Adams, creator of the popular comic strip Dilbert, has a simple but useful strategy of personal success: you can either choose to hyper-specialize and become the best in the world (top 1%) at doing one very specific thing, or you can try to become very good (top 25%) in as many different areas as possible, which you then can use in combination. The latter strategy is far easier, and is often more effective: by improving your skills in a few different but related areas, you increase your versatility and rarity, making your particular combination of skills more uniquely valuable.

Scott Adams,流行连环画Dilbert的创始人,对个人成功有一个非常简单且有用的策略:你可以选择作为在某个高度专业化的领域成为全世界最牛的超专业的人(top 1%),或者尝试选择在尽可能广泛的领域中(可以组合使用)表现很好(top 25)。后者更为简单,同时也更为有效:通过在不同且相关的领域中提高你的技能,将会另你多才多艺、另你更为特别、令你那独特技能的组合更具有独特的价值。
