You think that I revealed the secret and that I spoiled all the fun for reading till the end ?
That’s the funny part, and also a test. If you don’t make it till the end than I’m right, you don’t possess the ability to set goals and stick to them. : ) I win 🙂
O, so you are still reading, good. Then let’s dig in.
When you think of skills and callifications, what do you think you should learn ? What do you think can help improve your life, career ? Relationship building skills? Computer programming? Another language? Communication skills?

The most important skill in life is being able to set goals and make them a reality, your reality.
How often do you get an idea to do something: get in shape, expand your business, learn a new skill, and… nothing happens?
This kind of thing is distressingly common. The gap between most people’s intentions and their actions is frighteningly large.
