In today’s time, people are working every day to upgrade their CV for a better job profile. In all that hustle we ignore the fundamentals of life. All the below discussed personal skills may not reflect in your resume but they will enhance your attitude and way of thinking.
Learning how to Learn
This is one of the most vital personal skills. Several influencers and leaders say, the more you learn the more resourceful you are. To learn an ample amount of things people should first master the art of learning. Either, they make their learning technique or they can adapt somebody else’s method to escalate the process of learning. We often focus on learning an endless amount of material and end up learning only 30-40% and sometimes even giving up. To avoid such happenings we must focus on fundamentals rather than focusing on two steps further.
To break a process into a small task
People repeat this expression a lot “don’t do hard work do smart work”. What this means is that doing multiple tasks at the same time will not get effective results and this is scientifically proven that our brain is not able to give 100% when multitasking. Rather, change the approach, divide the same amount of work into smaller tasks. This will yield results effectively and in lesser time. Use this method to hone your work efficiency and effectiveness.
Ability to verbalize what you think and feel
A lot of people cannot speak up about what they think or feel, some may be able to even speak those things but may choose the wrong set of words or phrases to describe them. It’s really important to put in the right words to express what you feel. If not, it may result in a collapse of the relationship, personal as well as professional.
Knowing when to keep quiet, listen and talk to someone
Firstly, the person needs to know when to stop talking and listen to others. If only you are speaking, you are not growing because you are sharing what you already know there is nothing new you learned from the other person’s perspective. This will only happen when you start listening. Secondly, people tend to hear others only to respond as quickly as possible and end up not paying attention to others’ conversation because the subconscious mind starts focusing on generating questions rather than listening to them attentively.
Self-analysis and self-acceptance
One should always know where they are and where they want to be. To achieve this, it is essential to evaluate the performance from time to time to get a better understanding of how far we have to go. Moreover one should embrace the growth and also the weakness that comes during this process.
While there are many other personal skills, the above-mentioned ones are the most prominent ones that all must strive to master, not just to do well in their personal spaces but also in their professional spaces.
