    Default The need to redefine your purpose role in society

    From the paradoxical "jack of all trades, master of none" to a self-professed specialist. Who else can identify with a need to constantly define and redefine your purpose/role in society?
    Remember to keep things simple and not any simpler like Einstein once said.

    Attending leadership workshops is like attenting personal development workshops in an untranslated language. (but one that obviously easily translates back to yourself).

    I define the roles for social purposes, and for that human need to 'feel like I need to have a purpose'. But in generally, I think it's pointless to seriously define oneself in a role. You're a human being first and foremost. Everything else is a manifestation or derivative of that. How severe, momentary, superficial etc they are... that's ...... "up to you", so to say.
    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.

    I used to wander from specialty to specialty, but it had NOTHING to do with society. I just didn't know what I wanted to do. I have since found the ideal caraeer for me, so now I do that and it's great.

    i can identify with it. once i know something, i'll improve until i'm very good at it. once the challenge is gone, it's boring, time to move onto to something else. i'm always redefining who i am. it's also good not to be the master, many get thick when they get to that level. they stop learning new things. i'd rather know lots of things. and combine the trades.

    That sounds familiar. And it seems Im not the only whos doing this, many(if not most) family members and friends are like this too.

    Specialializtion is perhaps not such a bad thing; but theres so much information being transmitted in our postmodern day and age it seems impossible for anyone to stay faithful to one system of thought, one lifestyle, one profession, one hobby, one family, one religion, one company, one cultural stream etc.
