Part II: Veil #1: Busyness > Identifying Your Skills

Chapter 12. Identifying Your Skills

Now that you have had a chance to think about your talents, let’s take a look at your skills. A skill is something you have learned to do. What competencies do you have as a result of training, experience, or education? Some examples include using computers, fixing an automobile, organizing, being assertive, operating equipment, and managing time. Most people have dozens of skills that immediately come to mind. The list that follows may trigger other skills of yours that you have forgotten about.

You may discover that the skills list includes some of the traits you listed as your talents in the preceding exercises. That is because people often work to develop skills in areas where they do not have talents. For example, some people have a talent for organization. It is a gift and seems to come naturally to them. But others work hard to learn how to organize through taking seminars, reading books, or training on the job—and eventually become skilled at organizing. You will need to make a judgment call about whether the traits you possess qualify as skills or talents.
