Superpower, 2

Something we used to say about Jorge—the same Jorge from this post, for what it's worth—was that he was good at everything but his job. That sort of statement... is it a compliment? An insult?

Both, sort of.

It's not the sort of thing you could aspire to—how do you aim at a goal like that anyway?—but if you get there, you know you've made it. It's a respectable level of achievement. Even when you're not good at some of the things list in your job req, people still come to you to Get Things Done. You're like the hero of that old saying: a Jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.
