While this is true, there is also a line in "The Art of War" (sorry, I can't seem to find the passage for a quote), that learning to many weapons makes you flexible but weak.

There has to be a balance. My "style" is to learn many tools, and discard the ones I don't find a great deal use for, even if they are a little easier for one or two tasks than another tool that has many more uses. The tools that are left in my toolbox, I learn well, very well. I learn to like all of them, some more than others, but I try to remain unbiased when I select a tools for the problem at hand.

I have seen this as fairly prevalent here in the Monastary as many of the people here also have the "lazy" mantra working :) Lazy, in this sense, usually means having many tools at your disposal, and knowing which one will work the most efficientlly with the least amount of effort.

So in a sense I have several favorites, and I temper these with and open mind and a natural curiousity for new tools that may fit into my toolbox.

Great node btw, and a very interesting read (The book, I mean :) ++

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!
