What is the most important skill you will need in your life?… A very beautiful need has occurred in the labor market, which is the signing of Donald Trump, the US President, on the decision to prefer skill over a university degree in employment. Better for me worth.
What is the most important skill you will need in your life?
But this decision leaves us with a question at the end of it a big question mark, very big in truth, which is “What is the most important skill that you are supposed to acquire?” I hope before you finish reading that you really stop and think about the question, the answer is not necessarily right or wrong, but thinking about the question itself is the goal.
Personally, my relationship with this question has been very volatile in the last 5 years, for a very large time in my life, I saw that your practical skill (which you work with) is the most important skill that you should acquire and that acquiring a practical skill through which you can benefit yourself, your community and the world is the most important thing you should achieve in Your life, of course, this statement from any logical perspective is true in a way that does not accept any doubt or even invites rethinking.
Let me say that rethinking is always required! Because but after acquiring a skill, I realized that there is a skill that is more important than any other skill and that it is the one I should have acquired and trained on all the time, even more than my interest in developing the skill that I work through. This skill is the ability to make decisions.
If you had asked me this question 4 years ago, for example, I would have told you that I had acquired skill and mastered it because this would benefit you and your society, but if you had asked me today, I would certainly tell you that your whole life is affected by your ability to make decisions, in the literal sense of the word.
Unfortunately, the “school” system, not to say education, kills the ability to make decisions in you, because the goal of it is not that you have a better ability to make decisions, but that you are “obedient” easy to put in a framework and control you, easy to be part of the system, Just doing what is required of you.
The funny thing is that the same school system requires you to make decisions that some may consider fateful, but in fact, they are all decisions that are settled, and the result is that you choose the framework in which you will complete, scientific or literary, college X or college Y? All of these choices and decisions affect the framework you want to be in, because by entering the new framework by your choice, you also exit from being part of the system, a recipient and not a producer, you perform what is required of you without even the ability to object, and the funniest and ironic is that you are supposed to learn that the opposite is true, Learn Oliver Twist’s masterpiece “Please sir I want some more”!.
- We will stop talking about the school system and let us celebrate a decision that I consider on a personal level as a victory for all the talented people who have been wronged by this system in the world, and let us talk more about the skill of making decisions, and why is it the most important skill that you need to acquire in your life.
- I mentioned in an article, How do you get out of the prison of your current situation, that every 4 months I do an analysis of the last period of my life and accordingly I begin to determine the decisions that I am supposed to take in the next period, from the aspects that I can not talk about in the article is how much anxiety that will be related to the decisions I will take it during this period, because one wrong decision can negatively affect my life for a long time, and one right decision can affect the rest of my life.
- You may not discuss this topic with anyone, but after a period of practice, I realized that the most important skill you will acquire in your life is the ability to make decisions, in any aspect of your life, and that the decisions you make on a daily basis are the ones that affect your future more than any other. Another need.
- The problem is that the word has a different meaning for many people, and many explain it that it is a big and huge need, and the truth is that in your normal day, you need to take a very large number of decisions, but they are called “choices”, I work today and do not know? Watch a movie or read a book? Do I follow a series or a documentary series? These are examples of choices you may be making every day without realizing how much they will affect your life in the future.
- This in itself is one of the most important things on the basis of which I decide what to do. I always tend to choose choices that affect my future more than choices that give me instant pleasure, as if I choose to read a book or learn new words about watching a movie because the first choice will help me. In the long run, but the second option will keep me entertained for a while.
Stop conflicting with the routine is the solution!
But let me tell you that I discovered that this in itself is not true! Or not what is supposed to happen, I discovered that on the day I make more choices (decisions), the quality of these choices decreases and that it is not true that I live my day in a way that makes me need to make a large number of choices from the ground up and that I am supposed to keep my mind to make big and important decisions.
And the solution here was the problem that I had been wrestling with all my life, “routine,” and I actually discovered that the struggle with routine is a war of victory in which there is loss and that the best solution is that I take advantage of routine to reduce the need to make a large number of choices daily by planning a daily form from the beginning and maintaining a healthy routine And indeed, the experience worked, and the routine helped me greatly in that I am exposed to fewer choices every day, and this really improved the quality of my important decisions and thus improved the quality of my life as a whole.
The skill of making important decisions!
And to mention the important decisions, almost in the last 4 times I did the third annual analysis session that I talked about during the article, I actually used to find myself every time I made at least 3 choices, of which one is the riskiest, but if I succeed in achieving it, it will be the most influential. In my life positively, in the 4 times, I was far from this choice (in its various forms) and the result is that the quality of the big decisions – related to this practice – I can’t say it is the best and natural friendliness. The goal is not that 100% of your decisions are correct, the goal is that +50% of your decisions are correct. This is all that is required to be achieved, and what if you are able to achieve it your whole life will be better because achieving it is not as easy as talking about it at all.
And mentioning the last 4 times you did the analysis, there is an important need that you need to take care of, and you are at what stage of your life? Relatively, I am currently not trying to decide what is right, I am trying to choose what is wrong as much as possible because I am not at a stage in my life where I need to make the right decisions as much as I need to gain more experiences because wisdom says
Good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment
Perhaps this is the reason that many people I know depend on me to make many similar decisions, and people will think that I always know to choose the right one. The truth is that this is not as a beautiful thing as it seems, because this was the result of a huge number of experiences and wrong choices! I literally deliberately go through many experiences, regardless of whether they are right or wrong, and I may think once in my life that I knew what was right and chose it from the first time and this is normal because without the huge number of wrong experiences and choices, whether by going through them personally or knowing them from others, you will not be able to choose the right one, You will not be able to make a better judgment on choices that will help you make the right decisions.
I apologize if I talked too long about myself in this article, but there is no better way for me to share these ideas without what seems like personal experiences, because I am not saying that this is the absolute right, nor what you are supposed to do, I simply share my experience with you and you are absolutely free to do so. Criticize and think about it analytically and benefit from it, because this is the main goal of sharing it in the first place.
If you read the article up to this point, I am certainly very excited. I know your answer to the question at the beginning of the article. What was it, and if it was a skill other than the ability to make decisions, would you still be convinced that there is a skill more important than it? I will be glad to hear from you.
