What skills would you like to improve?
What do you want to be when you grow up? Isn’t that one of the most asked questions when we were 5 and innocent. If you ask the same question to a bunch of 20 year olds, do you think most of them would know the answer? It’s probably because they’ve known the difference between talent and skill. Between passion and profession. What would you choose? Something that you love doing or to be someone you swore you would be in the next five years? I think it’s possible to choose both, if you’re lucky enough to know what you love and what you want at the same time.
Improving a skill is important because that is basically how you attain competency. But, I believe selecting which skill you would like to improve is more important. This may be about achieving success in life but it’s also about defining your character more. Who you are, what you are and what you want to be. Improving in a skill gives a sense of accomplishment and, in a way, self-satisfaction. Whether it’s for you or for your job, improvements will make you feel good.
