In a lot of ways this book is a vindication of everything I hold dearWhy Well granted it IS a vindication of a mindset that rebels against going down any single rabbit hole to the exclusion of everything else in this life which is basically another way of saying that specialists are generally unable to see beyond their own field Being widely read having wide experiences and knowing a ton of different fields lends the person in uestion a much greater chance to make creative connections that most others will missThe benefit of being a generalist is not lost on me The I learn across many fields the easier I understand ANY field even unrelated ones like cross stitching and covariant loop analysis Or the tensile strength of a willow tree to cognitive plasticity It s not about knowing any one thing It s about being able to see the forest for the trees About seeing and correctly intuiting the bigger picture It s about sussing out trends Tossing out bad ideas including a wide variety of tools in your toolbox and knowing which ones to throw away as the situation demandsIt s about being adaptable Being able to be creative Using analogies It s about cutting to the heart of the issue because you re able to SEE a problem that might cross many different fields and affect them allIn a specialist world generalists still tend to outperform across their entire lifetime any specialist Being able to cite everyone in your field does not predict how you would perform when encountering anything novelSo who s in charge of hiring well read people with strong critical thinking skills and temperaments conducive to thinking outside the boxAnyoneHello I m right herelol

Compare yourself to yourself yesterday not to younger people who aren t you An incredibly slow read for me but I enjoyed it a lot and felt like I was on information overload after finishing each chapter Who knew that so many case studies and anecdotes could support having breadth vs depth of knowledge The author of course nods to the fact that it s important to have both kinds of people generalists and specialists but his argument is against the prevalent thinking that we should pick an area of focus from a young age and keep at itSome of the sections that spoke most to me involved communication across teams and disciplines I honestly felt that I grew the most as a professional when working with and learning from colleagues who did very different things than me during their day to day these relationships were especially rewarding when we could collaborate toward fixing a common problem Epstein covers this a few different times from a task as general as comparing your project against others within the company to get an understanding of how long it might take and whether it will be worth it in the end to the tradition of Monday Notes at NASA notes submitted by engineers which were circulated so all divisions could see what problems others were facingOne of my favorite conclusions from Epstein was that teams need elements of both hierarchy and individualism to survive Often too much process focused on pandering to upper management leads to lower uality feedback from lower ranking employees or in so many words an erosion of trust He calls this concept an Allegiance to Hierarchy and showcases how detrimental it can be particularly through the examples of the Challenger disaster and the 2008 global financial crisisAs someone who enjoys working across teams learning new things and sees contextual information critical to doing my job I appreciated Epstein s argument that it s important to have people who look across teamsprojects to identify systemic issues This is something I truly feel companies don t value enough and even though I ve advocated for it myself it s not something I ve often been encouraged to doThis is one of the few books I would actually recommend that everyone read That being said I can t uite give it 5 stars because it really is a challenge to push through some of the research I think the best approach is trying to read just one chapter per day so you have time to think about it Maybe it s of a 45 star read See of my reviews Blog Instagram
