The skills I find to be the most important in life and education are the following, and why they are important. Organization is a very important skill to have. It allows you to be more efficient and get more work done in less time. You’re able to find things that you want, it also helps when you want to impress someone. Time Management is the ability to separate the important from the unimportant, which is a much needed skill in all walks of life, especially where there are ever increasing opportunities and distractions. Problem- solving is where we all have to make decisions.

Time Management is also a good skill to have, now I have to admit I do have but I need a lot of work when it comes to time management. I am very good when it comes to my school, but put papers off till late minute. I will do outlines for the chapters ahead of time and I will do a rough draft but to sit and type a paper and go over it I will wait till last min. This is also how self- discipline fits in there because, if I had more self – discipline I would also do better with time management. I think that I am good when it comes to problem- solving. Over the years I have made a lot of decisions both large and small, school and work. Deciding between what was good for me now vs. what will be good for me in the future. This is another one that I feel my mom has helped me with when it comes to developing a problem- solving system. Last but yet one of the most important would be relationship networking. In this I believe that my mother and father had a large role in. They taught me to be social and outgoing, they had me in school sports and also at the local YMCA. When I got older, I was just a social person, and got to meet different people from different walks of life. This helped me in my school, personal and professional life. I use relationship networking now when it comes to filing paperwork and getting to meet and know the court clerks, judges, even the officers at the court houses.
