Edition#54: Life Without Skills, Failures and Opportunities, The Value Of Learning

Tips To Perform Better

1. If something becomes too challenging, the likelihood we’ll stay consistent is rare. But if it’s moderately complex and enjoyable, we have an increased desire to see how well we can continue performing—making consistency an easier feat to achieve.

2. Without skills, employers have no employees, a sports team have no athletes and an individual has no identity. Skill acquisition is the art of applying learnings to make a living or to live a high-quality life. 

Consider your skills an essential contribution towards daily progress.

Some Words To Consider

1. The basic equation of life is a process that gets realigned when you see and feel progression.

2. Our failures provide opportunities to pause, reflect and go again—so long as what we’re trying to achieve offers challenge, consistency and progression.

Entrepreneur, Jim Rohn on skill development

“You can cut down a tree with a hammer, but it takes about 30 days. If you trade the hammer for an ax, you can cut it down in about 30 minutes. The difference between 30 days and 30 minutes is skills.”
