If you can learn it, it’s a skill.
The thing is, almost everything that matters is a skill.
If even one person is able to learn it, if even one person is able to use effort and training to get good at something, it’s a skill.
It’s entirely possible that some skills are easier for talented people to learn.
It’s entirely possible you don’t want to expend the energy and dedicate the effort to learn that next skill.
But realizing that it’s a skill is incredibly empowering and opens the door of possibility.
What are you going to learn next?
Note: Talent? A skill learned quicker than average dedicated person?
Every decision we make changes things. The people we befriend, the examples we set, the problems we solve…
Sometimes, if we’re lucky, we get to glimpse those ripples as we stand at the crossroads.
Instead of merely addressing the urgency of now, we can take a moment to focus on how a quiet insight, overlooked volunteer work or a particularly welcome helping hand moves so many people forward. For generations.
How did you get to where you are?
Who is going to go even further because of you?
