You can achieve mastery in more than one field. What would be interesting to see is could a musician also master baseball?
Can you imagine yourself working at the same narrow position all the way up until the future?
Who you are a lot of the time is a reflection of what other people have told you.

Your greatest danger is that you’re going to be replaceable by the time you’re in your late 30s.
Michael Faraday became the greatest experimental scientist of the nineteenth century. But that never would have happened without the right mentor.
