Skill Stacking: How to Combine Your Talents for Greater Success with David Epstein
Chase Jarvis and best-selling author David Epstein discuss human performance, creativity, and the pros and cons of specialization in a career.
David, a former sports journalist and the author of "The Sports Gene" and "Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World," says that early specialization can be counterproductive and that having a wide variety of talents is necessary to succeed in a dynamic world that is continuously changing.
By "skill stacking", we can use the power of our own unique background and experiences to advance our careers.

Some highlights from the conversation:
Demystifying the '10,000 hours to mastery' myth How some people excel and others don't, and why Understanding the differences between generalization and specialization What approach to take when pursuing a particular craft Why there's more than one way to succeed Bridging the generational divide between parents' expectations and our generation's reality Enjoy!
