Martynas, what are the troubles of being a generalist?
Asked by Justas Janauskas
-- Thanks to Justinas for the question!
There are definitely many, but I would emphasize prioritization.
Being a generalist is emancipating. You get to experience a set of problems, solutions to them from a variety of angles. But there are also troubling parts that inhibit productivity of a generalist.
It's really easy for a generalist to pick up new ideas, ventures and place high priority on all of them. Very unlikely you'd be able to prioritize like that. And if one does - more likely to burn out over longer period.

What's your reason not to use data for big decisions?
I work with data every single moment of the day. Running queries, visualizing the data set in order to draw less incorrect decisions. However, there are times when human touch is more relevant than meticulously analyzed information. Let me know if you have encountered similar situations, and how you tackled them
Martynas LapėTech, investing and being a generalist - hit me up!Some time ago
I'm currently working at a multinational logistics company. While my role highlights analytical duties, it's been almost a year since I am mainly responsible for product management within my department. I still do analytics-heavy tasks, but I do not shy away from design thinking, testing and understanding target user needs. And I love it. Being a generalist, working with different departments to drive results make my day way better.
If you love working across multiple departments or love putting yourself in uncomfortable situations while at work or personal life - connect with me as I venture on lengthy note jots, shed light on the bright and dark sides of generalists like me.
At times of uncertainty, be a person of value with multiple skill, and willingness to help others, will get you promotion or not being layoff, should a company is down sizing.
