A master of one, for me.
In my humble opinion, if you want to achieve success therefore, you must specialize in something and be among the best people who do that thing. Sure there are some cases of brilliant people who were the best doing several different things, but that is the exception that confirms the rule.
What about you, do you all know what you want to do, why/why not?

It comes down to either being a specialist or a generalist. In most jobs, generalists are worth less because they have a basic idea of what needs to be done, but they will often need to rely on experts to do the heavy lifting. While they understand what's going on - usually from a layman perspective, they can't actually do the work.
The more specialized you are, the more people will go to you if they have that type of problem that needs to be solved. And if you're top of the ladder in your niche, you can command a lot of money for your services.0
