At a book launch recently, I heard Capt. Gopinath speak. Capt. Gopinath, as we all know, is a man of many hats – an army man, farmer, and entrepreneur. I know the HR Head of a large IT firm, who has completed his PhD while working a busy day job and runs marathons regularly. My work creates opportunities for me to meet and greatly admire people who do several different things and do them well. This led me to think if the common cautioning of ‘don’t be a Jack (or Jane) of all trades and master of none’ is worth revalidating.
