5 vital skills that your teachers won’t teach you

Rate this post


Once you teach yourself, “how to learn” then you don’t require any schooling for life. You will know what exactly you need to know to lead your future ahead. No bullshit would be be fed into your system, other than what little you are supposed to know.

You could never focus to learn one skill in school life, since each field is regimented into equal periods of information shoveled into your head with breaks in between. It feels like a cocktail of information.

Further to that you reach a point in time when you realize that the biggest skills that made you successful were learned from mistakes and your own experimentation’s.


1. How to sell your ideas

With any product the biggest challenge is to sell your idea and make the customer believe in the brand you have created. The evangelist in you is developed with your time and experience in real world situations. You pick up instincts and evaluate others on the basis of your personal relationship with others.

2. How to negotiate and lead

Negotiating is not a war of words but an art of dealing about mutual benefits, creating a win-win situation for both the buyer and seller. As a student we have this common misconception about making huge profits without loosing a stance. The attitude is not sustainable since every business thrives on mutual co operation with its competitors. One thing to remember is that you won’t gain anything if you are not ready to loose something for its sake.

3. How to organize your time – without over-organizing it

At one extreme, we have people who do no time management at all and seem to just stumble onto whatever task comes next. At the other extreme, some people have every element of their day scheduled down to the five minute mark. There’s a happy, healthy medium that allows freedom while still giving enough structure to make sure we get done the things we need to do. The first step is to keep a calendar. Another step is to constantly keep a “to-do” list going – and constantly add to it as ideas come into our head, writing them down instead of just trying to remember them.

4. How to keep out of debt and spend less than you earn

The fundamental key to money management is to simply spend less than you earn every single month. Part of that involves not over-committing yourself to future bills – in other words, get sensible mortgages and avoid other debts. It also means learning how to resist the temptation to have all of the material stuff that other people have.

5. How to consistently evaluate and improve yourself in every dimension of life

We all succeed in some areas and fail in others. Almost every situation in our lives offers some room for improvement, if only we’re willing to see it and take it. Personal growth requires a willingness to look at our own faults and mistakes and ask ourselves constantly what we can do to improve on those faults in every area of life. It requires that we accept that we’re not perfect and that we can always improve. It also requires us to take action to improve those faults.


College is part of the script that society gives you. Don’t plagiarize the lives of your parents, your peers, your teachers, your colleagues, your bosses. Create your own life. Be the criminal of their rules and always learns those skills you dont learn in school.
