Great advice! While focusing on one thing can certainly help you become great at it, I’ve learned that the most creative ideas come from blending ideas from multiple specialities and finding new connections between them. Though, if you try to specialize in too many things, you risk being just ok at all of them, so I think there’s some benefit to narrowing it down to the top things you’re passionate about — and what better way to figure out what those are then through the trial and error of your Ready-Fire-Aim technique :)
