Rock, Paper, Or Scissors?

22 replies
Which are you in your online business approach? While this doesn't nessissarily represent every IMer, it does represent the basic approach each of us take.

Rock-Have a solid foundation but doesn't branch out into new things


Paper- A "jack of all trades master of none". You are everywhere at once and you try to cover as many bases as possible.


Scissors- You only have one real function, but what you do, you do well.

    I would say paper, but moving more toward Scissors now that I'm more focused on what I want to do.

        Scissors beats dynamite because it cuts the fuse. At least that's how we played it in Michigan when I was growing up.

          Really?

          Wow! In my parts we, using the stick of dynamite, blew up the scissors before they could even get close, lol!

    See I can call myself paper, but to say that I'm not a "master" at something wouldn't make much sense.

    We are all experts in the fields that we have knowledge about. You might not think so, but someone who has ridden a motorcycle for 1 week has much more experience than someone who has never ridden one. Hence, the person would be an expert.

      Nah, that would constitute a novice. An expert could ride with wheelies, a master, wheelies blindfolded.

        See I understand the concept there. But if someone doesn't know how to do wheelies, then they would consider someone else that does more educated, because they are, in that specific field.

        I'm not saying they are legends. I'm saying that we all have something to bring to the table that can help others achieve what they want in life.

        I know how to do wheelies with my eyes closed. But someone wearing a blindfold isn't a master, they're a fool

    When I was doing more mat work in Judo, we'd do rock paper scissors to determine who starts in the turtle position and who would start as the instigator. That was quite enjoyable.

    voted paper because I am in to so many things... would have voted scissors but personal bias says that I am not exceptional at one thing specific. Thus on the forum looking for help
