Ability to learn (reflection)
Today's teenagers and students are projected to radically change their profession about 5 times in a lifetime. To keep up with the changes in the world you need to be able to quickly relearn. To master this skill, take any topic that is a "dark forest" for you. Nuclear physics or rules for creating web pages. Study the topic as much as possible. Use different sources, learn critical thinking (more on this below). Make it a habit to reflect. It is responsible for the acquisition of knowledge, not just learning. After all, memory is an insidious thing. Yes, American children remember about 10% of what they learn in a year. Not because the education system is bad, but because there is no habit of reflection. Important: you will say that you used to live without it and the information was memorized normally. Well, to begin with, where does this statement come from? And, most importantly, the amount of information around is impossible to compare. In order to realize what you have learned, you need to spend time, otherwise the head will be "Tik-Tok" of thoughts.
Teamwork and solving complex problems in parts
Individualism does not make sense in the modern world. It is impossible to solve the problems of the new world on their own due to their complexity and multicomponent nature. One person can not learn so much information. Musk is not a rocket or a space internet, it is a team of people. Practice quality communication. Take real problems and solve them together with friends or colleagues. Maybe this will be a case for your future job interview. Employers will appreciate your "homework".
Feeling people is important, especially in a world where most communication takes place online, without faces. Emoji are in your phone, but they are not there when you are trying to solve a problem live at work. First, learn to understand yourself, explain your emotions, then analyze others. Do you see the conflict? Analyze it.
Fake is the style of the new world. Do not believe anything until you check it in authoritative sources. Long? Your information hygiene is worth it. At the beginning of the quarantine, a picture of how strongly one person affects the spread of viruses was popular. The main lesson to be learned from this is that information is a virus and can cause terrible losses for many people. And if the coronavirus passes, the fake virus will not. Make it a habit to check the news. Create a section on Instagram or Facebook where you fight fakes - maybe it will make you popular. Well, in future work will be appreciated.
Artificial intelligence today can generate a picture, news text, branding (Lebedev's studio proved it). And what can you do? Creativity is not just about art. It's about solving problems. Do you know how to look at problems with "4 hats"? Maybe it's worth starting? Play with problem solving, again, at work dreams will appreciate it.
Memory, reading, foreign languages, the ability to count, to drive a car - these and other "mechanical" skills will soon be hidden alongside the ability to count on abacus and ethical rules when getting out of the carriage. Yes, languages will be replaced by state-of-the-art translators in headphones (already available), any modern technology can read for you, your smartphone, smart home, etc. are responsible for memory, calculator and programs count, cars are unmanned. Do not spend yourself on irrelevant skills, invest yourself in the demands of the world!
