I’ve talked about wearing many hats before, but I think I have a different analogy: cards. I keep adding new cards to my deck, and then I deal them out in various ways. The various combinations of those cards produce stronger and stronger hands.
What’s interesting is I feel that some of my older cards aren’t as relevant to my future as they once were. I’ll never abandon them completely, but I foresee more and more scenarios where I might want to discard them in my current hand to make room for something more useful.
Of course, whenever you discard, you never quite sure what you’re going to get when you draw, or what you’re up against.
