I am not interested in mastering any single profession but challenging the boundaries of the discipline itself.
We don’t know everything there is to know about the future, but one thing we do know for certain is that in a world of abundance making is diminishing in cost.
This effectively translates to accessibility of knowledge. What was before reserved for expert is now opening up to the intellectual, and later the lay person.
The tower is now a market.
Mastery is hard to reconcile under this scenario. Rather than anchoring a practice in one discipline we’re better off hovering over a few and constantly drawing lines of practice (for us and our clients).
This process is what I have calling liminality – intellectual exploration, with intent, conviction, and less than perfect understanding.
