List of Skills

In my first post, I talked about how everything is a skill and provided a few examples of skills you might have already known and maybe some you didn’t know. After thinking about the topic for a while, I have compiled a short list of possible skills you can learn, either in a classroom, from an online course, from a book, from a friend, from an online video and/or from trial and error. The list is provided below, with a few links to resources on how to learn a few skills (please note that these are not affiliate links and I will not make any money from them – they are purely for your own edification):
