  • A new kind of mastery
  • How developing a portfolio life will prepare you for the future

Quotes and takeaways

  • A calling is not something you do, it’s about the someone you become
  • A better life leads to better work and better work leads to a better life
  • The future belongs to those who learn more skills
  • The goal is not to be a jack-of-all-trades, but a master of some
