Posted by Dr. Wilbert R. Mutoko | November 16, 2019, | All articles, Business | Life Tips | Careers | Leadership|Official Website: www.wilbertmutoko.comLinkedIn Facebook YouTube Instagram Twitter Today I decided to answer a major question that people ask me whenever they see me do a new project, or when I unleash my potential in a different dimension. COMMON QUESTION FROM PEOPLE: Dr Wilbert R. Mutoko, what do you do? MY COMMON ANSWER TO THE PEOPLE: I am a passionate lover of Jesus Christ, a loving husband to one wife Phillis Mutoko, and I am a caring father of three biological children and many spiritual children. I am a passionate Academic specializing in Leadership, Strategy & Entrepreneurship, Motivational Speaker, Leadership/Strategy Consultant, Trainer/Speaker on Financial Wellness, Family Builder, Gospel Artist, Blogger, Success Coach, Marriage Coach, Pastor, Actor, and Author. Thus, all that I do goes to empower people in different ways. But it is one mandate. COMMON RESPONSES FROM THE PEOPLE: Aah! You are a jack of all trades! You have finished opportunities for others! Why does one person do all these things? What will others do? How do you do all these things? Where do you get time to do all these things? MY CLARIFICATION TODAY: I know that common advice says that you should stick to one thing. That is good advice for most people. But there are a few people in the world who have been blessed with the capacity to do a lot of things without crashing. Such people make money not just for themselves, but to share with others. Such people never get satisfied until they have touched more and more lives. They keep serving humanity until they die empty, having exhausted the gifts which God gave them. They know that gifts are not for them, but to benefit others. They will benefit in the process of being a blessing to others, as a pipe that transports water from point A to point B will never run dry. I am privileged to be one of those people that are multi-talented, and I am also a multi-tasker. My heartbeat is on how I can help others. As soon as I wake up in the morning, I am always thinking, how can I help more people across the world. Furthermore, to whom much is given, much shall be demanded. I am not competing with anyone. I compete with myself to finish what I was born to do. So, should everyone do. All of us have work to do to make the world better now and in future. No one can finish opportunities for others. There is enough for everyone, if you are willing to pay the price. The world of opportunities is like an ocean. Even if you go and fetch water from the ocean using a tanker, there will still be enough for all. According to the Oxford Dictionary, ‘jack of trades and master of none’ refers to a person who can do many different types of work but who is not necessarily very competent at any of them. Now, if you know me well, you are sure that I am not a jack of all trades and master of none. Whatever I do goes gold. I love excellence. I am an exceptional lecturer, I am an international author, I excel as a Pastor and family builder, I am an excellent and eloquent speaker/trainer/coach, and our 8-track Gospel album has been rated one of the best albums so far. Fans say that the album does not look like it is the first. Most fans say that the whole album has hit songs, thus they can not tell which song is the best. Is that what you call a jack of all trades and master of none? The fact that you did not know what other potentials and skills someone has should not cause you to underrate that person. Antony Robbins controls about 33 companies, but I have never heard anyone call him jack of all trades. Sir Richard Branson controls about 400 companies, but I have never heard anyone call him jack of all trades. Dr. Myles Munroe was a pastor, leadership consultant, musician, marriage counselor, motivational speaker, author, etc. but I have never heard anyone call him jack of all trades. Why do you not call them jack of all trades? What matters at the end of the day is your capacity to do divers things and do them exceptionally well. Case closed. God bless you.
