If, on top of that, you can effectively communicate to me exactly what made your past projects fun and challenging to work on, then heck-- let's get married.

The 8 Skills Students Must Have For The Future Editor’s note: This is a revised version of an article written by Katie Lepi that originally appeared on June 7th, 2014. We believe this information is still highly relevant, but we wanted to update it with the latest thinking. To do that, we invited writer Michael Sledd to take the reins. Education has traditionally focused on the basic “3Rs” of reading, writing and arithmetic. This naturally leads to the question of what those skills are or will be, and while there are other excellent suggestions out there, Pearson’s 2014 edition of “The Learning Curve” report lists the 8 skills below as those most necessary to succeed in the 21st century.

For instance, if you’ve been letting others walk all over you for years, it’ll take some practice for you to set firm boundaries. And to keep setting them. It’ll be more automatic, way easier, to say yes to something you don’t want to do, to let someone borrow something you don’t want them to borrow, or to let someone make remarks about your weight, because you’ve rarely stood up for yourself.

For me, a big empowering reminder is working out — especially when I’m lifting heavy dumbbells or doing a particularly challenging workout. When I’m exercising, I feel invincible. Another reminder is reading articles. It’s self-care. They remind me that I’m capable of doing these things.
