I love this reply John P. Weiss!
You touch on an important topic: making a living. You are absolutely correct that most polymaths struggle with that. In my wheel of life, I still rank myself at a low 3. 4 on a good month. :)
I’m lucky that I can live anywhere I want or rely on my wife’s stability when I have bad months. Not everyone has that chance.
That being said, once I have the minimum I need, I make sure to go all in on my polymathy. I would not be happy and thrive otherwise. And that, in turns, allow me to perform better at work.
Anyway, great article and great reply!
