This is just someone’s personal blurb about his tendencies for “generalistics“. It’s an interesting self-awareness, however, that this Mr. Ellison describes; labelling himself a “lazy generalist” – a dilettante with a penchant for beginnings. As a business consultant and fiction writer, he declares this mindset of dabbling to be a great advantage.

In my decades of existence I have had the good fortune to have dabbled in a variety of fields and industries. It’s one of the several good things about being a consultant who helps companies grow their businesses. All of my dabblings have (if nothing else) taught me vast respect for those who have the talent, inclination and singlemindedness to become competent specialists. If I live long enough, I hope to become a competent generalist. A couple hundred more years oughta do it.
