    depends on what you plan to do or become

    being a specialist helps in most jobs environments, but being a generalist helps more in life.

    being capable of doing everything pretty decently isn't achieved fairly quickly, and to some it's impossible to reach at all as it depends a lot on a person's nature.
    sure you can. If you follow a killer workout regimen, have a personal trainer, are strict with your nutrition, have excellent sleep and use good supplements, you can have a great physique in 6 months.

    You can do a lot in in 10 years with 6 month chunks. Get an excellent boxing teacher and practice it everyday, you'll be a better boxer than most people. 6 months studying the likes of Loomis and Bridgman every day and practicing still lifes for a total of 8 hours everyday will make you pretty impressive to the average person when it comes to drawing.

    You'd likely need 10 years to go 10 rounds with Tyson or to paint anything that even approaches Michelangelo, but you only need six months to be above average. you just need to very effective with what and how you train.

    GP's aren't going anywhere since most people can't identify, or sometimes even recognize, symptoms.


    I think generalists such as phone operators are the softest target.
    it's just an example. their numbers are going to go down though because unless you're in the top 10% or so, they'll be more money to make in other fields. People are gonna go where the money is and money is to be made in niches.

    lol no i'm just saying 10 yrs is how long it takes to master something. if you decide to instead spend those 10 years on getting decent at a whole bunch of stuff, you're gonna get decent at a whole bunch of stuff.

    Still, it's probably better to focus on around 10 things than to go willy nilly with everything.

    no worries. i can't be arsed to argue with anyone anyways

    GPs I imagine are only slated to increase as populations with minor afflictions start to group up. Especially as school rates for specialist degrees begin to increase in cost. I think medical will be a field where specialty roles will actually decrease by ratio.

    In other things I imagine we'll see specialization increases as things like automation take over general stuff. Or are shifted to general oversight like a supervisor.
