“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, pitch manure, cook a meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly…specialization is for insects.” – Robert Heinlein

I have always tried to look beyond what I was expected to be to what I wanted to be.  If something interested me, I jumped in with both feet – I still do.  Because of this I have been able to achieve expertise in several diverse occupations.  The articles and books I write pass on this knowledge and experience to those who also seek to become all they are destined to be.
