Master one using a focused initial investment of time and then keeping in touch by browsing the updates (new patterns of solving a problem using that technology).
For the rest, have enough high level understanding of different patterns/solutions to be able to work through anything that may come up. The solution need not be as clean as the one provided by a specialist but good enough to comply with the most basic acceptable practices/patterns common across many different technologies. Build your learning muscles by working on diverse things in order to understand the core principles of any new technology faster.
