What kind of skills are good to have in a world that keeps on changing every day. What was a good skill to have years ago, doesn´t have to be a good skill today. But there are just some skills that are universal and timeless. I will bring you some of them here in the serie “Skills Everyone Should Master“. You don´t have to learn them all at once, but set yourself the goal to achieve them one by one.
You never know where you will end up if you are enjoying travelling and adventures. Therefore you have to learn how to make a fire just like Tom Hanks in Cast Away.
Give advice that matters in one sentence. I got run out of a job I liked once, and while it was happening, a guy stopped me in the hall. Smart guy, but prone to saying too much. I braced myself. I didn’t want to hear it. I needed a white knight, and I knew it wasn’t him. He just sighed and said: When nobody has your back, you gotta move your back.Then he walked away. Best advice I ever got. One sentence.
Name a book that matters. The Catcher in the Rye does not matter. Not really. You gotta read. Get inspired and create your own reading univers.
Know at least one musical group as well as is possible. One guy at your table knows where Cobain was born and who his high school English teacher was. Another guy can argue the elegant extended trope of Liquid Swords with GZA himself. This is how it should be. Music does not demand agreement.
Be open minded and feel the others desires for the conversation when you have delivered you message. A conversation can go in many directions and so can you.
…or write a daily diary. This is a very good way to reflect upon your day. Make every day a good day, so you have something good to write.
If you don´t like the water. Make yourself like the water. Maybe some day your life depends upon it. So learn three different strokes. Doggie paddle doesn’t count.
Show respect without being a suck-up. Respect the following, in this order: age, experience, record, reputation. Don’t mention any of it.
These were the first 8 important skills that I think is important for you. The next 8 are coming up when you can do the first 8 ;o)……
Naa you don´t have to wait that long.
