etc. It is used at the end of a list to indicate that further, similar items are included.
Jack of all, good at none does not stand true for me. I am a believer – one lifetime is too little to excel in only one subject. It will be too mundane, too boring. Why not do more, explore more, practice a little more, be an expert and move on… correction, maybe expertise is given too much importance!
Learn, apply and move on to the next. etc. keeps it open for interpretation; keeps one wanting for more. It is etc. that gives you hope.
etc. is inevitable for designers, it is important for one and all. Etc. is no more just etc. anymore…
After all, everything is etcetera, etcetera is not everything!
