Generalist or Specialist


What's best?
To be a generalist
Or a specialist
Here's the test.

When need arises
Solution must be found
Quickly and effectively
Without beating the bush.

We need a specialist
Who's general
And a generalist
Who's special.

Solution's often found
From knowledge one acquires
From several related fields
With keen observation.

Finding the solution
Quickly's the key
No one cares if one who solves
Is a generalist or specialist.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
