"Being good at something doesn’t promise rewards. It doesn’t even promise a compliment. What’s rewarded in the world is scarcity, so what matters is what you can do that other people are bad at." – Morgan Housel

This quote overvalues scarcity and undervalues utility.

Doing a useless thing well that other people are bad at is not a good strategy.

Most people are bad at most skilled work, so you just need to get skilled in one thing useful to be better than most other people.
