In honour of this my own thread, it got me thinking.
If you had a choice between being:
a) Super skillful in a generalistic way (meaning that to every type of action/art you are adept at manouvering/playing it)
b) Master Strategist (this includes being masterful at tactics - so basically both long-term and short-term planning and the How/When/Why/Where(s))
Which would you be?
Let’s say a genie gave you a choice to be one of them. He told you that if you were a), it would not necessarily undermine your strategic planning (i.e. you could improve your tactics+strategy, however you would never be as good as a) - or anywhere in the same league).
But this also applied to being b) (i.e. you would be a masterful planner in everyway, however you would never be in the same caliber of skillfullness as a)).
So which is it gonna be?
Any sports analogies (where a team with greater skill but less strategy or vice versa won) or field analogies of any type (war/arts&crafts/poker etc.) are welcome.
Give totally your own personal take on the matter.
