One size fits all.
Does it? Who is the all? What are the standards and who made this assumption?
Saying something is one size fits all is essentially saying that we are a homogenous society with standardized styles, tastes, sizes and shapes that are all equal. Implying this, is saying there is a generalization that we have all agreed upon and it is “the” standard.
A one-size-fits-all system requires that there is “a” solution suitable for a wide range of situations, problems and people, though it ignores individuality and diversity.
When it comes to careers one size definitely does not fit all. Jobs are filled by employees who have specific skill sets, strengths, interests and personalities. How could a job or anything for that matter fit “all”?
“Instead of thinking out the box, get rid of the box.” – Deepak Chopra
