Jack of all trades

I find it hard to focus on just one thing. Therefore I know a little about a lot. What is everyone's feedback on this. Is it best to master one thing or to dab in a little of this and that? Don't get me wrong I have spent extra time on some stuff like HTML CSS C#. I also work good in Visual Studio, Unity, Gimp, Blender, Linux OS "Backtrack from past life". By no means am I a expert but I can get around and make stuff work. I'm currently learning Google Cloud Platform. This makes for a strange resume and mostly not hireable. My take is that being able to learn and use multiple resources would make me adaptable and able to grow with the company.

I used to have the same problem when I was younger. I thought I had to learn every single language and framework I came across, so I spent hundreds of hours learning about a bunch of tech I no longer use or remember.

Personally, I asked myself, "what do I want to create?" is it websites, games, bots? Once I had an answer to that, the next step was to focus on the most used technologies in that area, doing some search on what the companies around my city use to build software definitely helped me pick a stack of tools as well.

That is why I started to learn Google Cloud Platform. Seems like a growing area with a growing job market. Then I can still work on my side projects on what ever platform I choose.
