Which do you think is better? And explain the reason of your choice
whatever comes more naturally. it's my experience that some people are naturally inclined toward mastery while others are naturally inclined toward variety. you'll be happier and more successful working with the way you are than against it. i think there's room in this world for both.
You hem me in -- behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
for me personally, I like to have some variety to my knowledge because if I know a bit about a lot of things I can improvise with what I do know... however, I do have a few hobbies that I delve into farther than others
Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom? -Terry Pratchett
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
-Robert A. Heinlein
I like this quote because it validates me. But, I do feel that at the least people should attempt to be well-rounded and have an understanding of the world around them. Beyond that, follow your passion.
I'm generally very focused in my pursuits, but the more I branch out, the more I can see that to master one skill, you must master other, apparently unrelated skills. The things you learn in one area will often tell you things about another area that you never would have discovered if you hadn't tried something different. That's especially true if you're doing something like writing plays, which calls on the full range of your experience, and not so true if you're trying to do something like master peeling potatoes.

I'm not a one trick pony and thats the way I like it. I may not compose a symphony in my lifetime but I will do the rest okay. In the current economic climate I think specialists can both have an advantage and be incredibly vulnerable. It only takes one little innovation to make someone redundant these days. If you've invested 10yrs in a specialisation that later becomes overtaken by technology then you'll have to start from ground zero. Scary place to be.
Sure, you'll always have one thing that you're just meant to do, but other things that you enjoy doing. I think you should progress in whatever you like to do and become really good at it, but if your heart is absolutely stuck on that one talent, that should be the one you pursue first.
