What You Really Need To Learn To Be Successful In Life - Part V

What are the key skills that, in an hypothetical situation where there were no schools as we know them today, I would deem essential for my son and daughters to learn in their youth?


Photo credit: Child with question marks by Shutterstock

By posing myself this question over and over, and by questioning traditional curriculums and the real, practical usefulness of them in helping a human being survive and realize the dreams and ideas he conceives of, I have arrived at thirty-five key skills that I have listed in this multi-part guide.

In this new and unique learning curriculum there is very little of what schools normally provide.

Made exception for some basic math (though learned and understood with a completely different approach) and for dwelling deeper into truly understanding how to “read” something or knowing more about one’s own body and physiology, the thirty-five skills that I have explored in this guide share very little similarities, if any, with those that you can gain in the 13 years of basic traditional school education.

My key selection criteria in considering, evaluating and finally choosing anyone of the skills that I have here listed, has been a rather simple question: does the mastering of this skill significantly affect my probability to live a meaningful, constructive and rewarding life experience independently of the time, part of the world, social class, and group that one could be living in?

And when my answer has been positive I have included that skill.

Here the last five ones that I have selected:

31. How to Search

32. How To Navigate

33. How To Calculate with Numbers

34. How To Rest

35. How To Cure Oneself


Here all the details:
