Where are your Blind Spots?
Where are you weak and you don't even know it?
What are the weaknesses you most need to work on?
Put another way...
What are the important skills to learn?
What skills make for a successful life?
How do you become well rounded as a person?
This course is the result of many years of searching for the answer to a simple question:
What skills should everyone learn?
What are the essential life skills you should have figured out?
The first part of this course goes into professional skills.
This is the area of life that contains the most differences from person to person.
People have careers that are totally different from one another.
However, there are skills that are transferable from profession to profession, from job to job.
I covered these transferable skills in the "Mastering Thinking Skills" course, so I only cover this area very briefly and give some tips on Skill Investing. For further depth on Skill Investing, see "End Game." I cover each of these two topics in 3-4 hours of depth, so it didn't make sense to duplicate them here.
The second part of the course is on Personal Skills.
These involve the basics of running your life, your finances, your home and running your home. Managing your property, both physical and intellectual. Planning vacations, entertainment, leisure.
The third part of the course is Relationship Skills.
These are the social/emotional skills that carry over in every area of your life where you are interacting with other people. You get a framework for understanding what skills exist and what they are composed of. That being said, I'm not actually teaching these skill in a deep way, I'm more explaining what they are and touching on the major aspects. Each skill I mention is something that would require months or years of training/practice/instruction to really master, and that applies to all the skills in this course.
The point of this course is to serve as a big picture roadmap to help you structure your learning in a systematic way with a comprehensive framework. It's up to you to then go find the in depth material for each skill.
The fourth part is Health Skills.
You'll learn the different aspects of health, whether it's diet, exercise, dealing with the health care system and learning basic first aid skills.
Again, the purpose of this course is that it's a big picture, comprehensive taxonomy/ontology of all the life skills out there. To develop this I used by own learning project collection, plus I researched dozens of the top Life Skills taxonomies out there to come up with a truly comprehensive collection of skills.
For those of you who understand the value of systems, this one right here is a very important one to have.
Find your weaknesses with this course, and start working on them.
