Apply This Concept
Is it possible to be an "expert" in all areas of Life? Your "natural talents," along with your life experiences and interests, will help shape the directions in which you choose to apply yourself. With information and knowledge virtually "exploding," there is simply too much data for one person to keep up with and process on a regular basis.
Harmoniously allying yourself with several other people, especially those with different areas of expertise, but similar values, is a means of combining your strengths for mutual benefit.
Strong marriages that have withstood the test of time have probably utilized this principle. Think of a baseball team: "Teamwork" means a catcher, a pitcher, etc.: not 24 outfielders and no infielders. Not all defense, and no offense.
Embracing your different strengths and shoring up your weaknesses and "blind spots" is a formula for success.
