Things you should have learned in school, but they will never teach you.
I will have to save this to teach to my son.
Good list of things one needs to learn. There are a couple of things I see that are missing. Well, they are actually sort of inter-related. One is the ability to think and write critically. And the second is to take criticism - to be able to look at criticism and figure out what you can learn from it. Some criticism is just venom and should be ignored or, in the case of Stumbleupon, just blocked. A lot of criticism has at least a kernel of help - it can help you grow into a better person.
As far as whether the school should be teaching all this? Yeah, I know it is always in fashion to blame the schools. shrug. Isn't it better for people to learn academic topics in academia - for instance reading, writing and math. shrug. Life lessons - you learn them through living.
I found this page thanks to Vedanth.
21 things that no one learns at school. You either learn it the hard way or someone grabs you on the side of the road and tells you every bit of it.
This article is a great entry point to a thoughtful and useful site. Don't miss "Are you an American Zombie"!
What an incredibly interesting and informative website, giving advice and tips on maintaining personal happiness (without the patronising nicey-nicey undertones).
Some good articles covering various topics such as:
10 Causes and Cures of Unhappiness
11 Causes and Cures for Procrastination
How to Deal with Difficult People Vol. 1.
From the page: "If someone doesn't take us aside and teach us a few things (assuming we would listen) before we graduate high school, we are doomed to learn life's hardest lessons in the real world beyond the classroom."
HA - What a concept! Teaching people the skills that will actually ensure their success rather then cramming them into the same public education system that has already proven itself to be less than effective. Great list, John!
