Good post by Kirk Borne. If you have
then your potential or value (v) is equal to
v = a * b * c* d * e * f > a + b + c + d + e + f
This is because any time you face a new challenging problem, all your brain synapses [from (a) to (f)] are firing at once to find a solution, and information moves in your brain at the speed of light, from (a) to (f), to solve the problem. Because only one brain is involved, it is getting processed much faster; it is just like real-time versus back-end processing.
Few people master everything from (a) to (f). Those who do are typically entrepreneurs, but the more you have, the higher the value that you can deliver. These skills are not additive, they are multiplicative when found in a single individual - and typically, it translates in a revenue growing exponentially depending on how many of them you have. Many of these skills can be learned by most people - even advanced data science can be learned by a kid (see also this article). I will write more on this subject in the coming weeks, to help some of our younger readers boost their career.
