Life skills is a set of basic skills acquired through learning and/or direct life experience that enables a person to effectively deal issues and problems commonly encountered in daily life. In this blog, I’ll share with you the 5 most important life skills you need to have.
Before going through its details in this blog topic, let me share with you my vlog about this topic if you are more of a visual person and want to learn through video presentation or vlogs. You can watch it here:
1. Common sense
Having common sense is one of the most important skills to have in life, and yet many people do not utilize it. This refers to the basic intelligence and logic used to deal with basic every day situations and solve basic problems in life.
This ability involves thinking about what you’re doing at any one time, being more aware and not forgetting little details which could be important later.
2. Communication or social skills
Having a logical structure to what you say is very important. The way you speak to people and what you say will enable you to develop relationships with them, at work, with your friends etc.
This is a skill that will help you in all areas of your life, whether it’s meeting new people on travels or starting a business. It is such a great asset to combine with other skills which is the recipe for success.
3. Mastering the money
Money management is an important skill to everyone. Lack of this could lead to serious situation in person’s life where he could manage to lose all his life’s saving due to either having a bad spending habit or a bad investment decision.
Money has the power to create or the power to destroy. One thing is for sure: you must master money, or it will master you.
This skill will help to understand others plight and their feelings which makes your social life easier. Not only that but empathy also will help you form your own morals that will guide you in making good choices and become a better person.
5. Time management skills
Time efficiency is not only helpful in school or on our job, it is increasingly valuable the older we get, for the older we get the less and less time we will have, until we retire. To effectively manage our time, we need to eliminate the unnecessary, plan your work, learn to multitask, know when to multitask and reduce interruptions.
