Want to be successful? Be a polymath.

“Jack of all trades, master of none.” You’ve probably heard that quote before, maybe your parents lobbed it at you when you had one hobby too much while studying in secondary school. But not a lot of people know the last part of the quote: “better than a master of one.” Some of the most successful people have hobbies that seem to completely contrast their area of expertise. Tropika Club dives into why becoming a polymath could lead to success.

Enter: The Polymath

A polymath possesses knowledge spanning across different subjects. Some of the most important names in our history books have been polymaths: Thomas Edison, Leonardo da Vinci, Aristotle. And modern examples include the brains behind some of the biggest tech companies are polymaths too: Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates. 

Polymaths are often able to draw on complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems. In the example of Elon Musk, he combines his understanding of physics, engineering, programming, design, manufacturing, and business to run his ventures that span across vastly different fields
