Jordan Peterson - Do You Want To Have A Life? Or Be Exceptional At One Thing?

In this video Jordan Petersen discusses the pros and cons of a more balanced life vs being very focussed in how you spend your time.

When I was younger I was encouraged to follow the balanced approach through schooling and socialisation. Being very focussed on a small number of topics gets you labelled a nerd or boring.

However living in that way made me unhappy and over time I learned that most of the people that were living these balanced lifestyles were not achieving anything exceptional in their lives.

Every since I ditched that way of being I became much happier but it's true, you sacrifice a lot to life in this way. It has cost me at least one very good relationship.
