One of the best ways to make use of your spare time into something productive is
to learn a new skill. Have you noticed that successful people don’t waste their
time into unproductive things? Most of the time they are busy managing their
business and when they get spare time, they try to learn a new skill.
They believe learning is a never-ending habit and we should always try to learn
something new that can be helpful in our life.
Beyond impressing others, taking the time to learn a few new skills is fun and
incredibly useful for life in general. Have you ever tried to pick a lock? Or fold
your shirts in just five seconds? Skills like these sure can come in handy, even
when nobody’s watching.
Below are a few easy-to-learn skills that are sure to impress everyone and also
help develop yourself in a positive way.
SOLVE A RUBIK’S CUBE
Rubik’s cubes look like they’re only meant for math whizzes and geniuses. But I
promise they’re not impossible to solve — if you understand how they work.
Instead of twisting the squares around and hoping for the best, there is a
pattern you should be following. Once you get it down, you can solve these
things in a few seconds.
LEARN MICROSOFT EXCEL
Excel is one of those tools used in businesses for analyzing and storing data. They
are used to represent data in a more structured & presentable form.
The best thing about Excel is that it offers a lot of formulas & shortcuts to making
your task easier and faster.
If you run a business and need to store numerical data in a more organized way,
then learning excel will really help you.
PICK A LOCK
Let’s say you’re locked out of your apartment, and all your roommates are
standing by, wondering what to do. You can a) wait for the super or the
locksmith, or b) pick the lock yourself. It does require a wrench and a paperclip.
But if you do, you’ll be the hero of the day.
Makeup is a fun thing most girls like to do. They can develop their skills in doing
makeup and flaunt themselves after this lockdown!
Speed reading can come in handy when going over terms and conditions (you
read those, right?), getting through a book quickly for class, or simply checking
more novels off your to-read list. All of which are very impressive.
