Skilling – The New Cool!

“10th grade? Work hard, you’ve to give your boards for the first time.”

“12th grade? You’ve to score well enough to get into a good college.”

“Which stream are you going to choose?”

“Why are you choosing to do a degree that isn’t even minutely related to the stream you’ve pursued in the last 2 years?”


Aren’t these the questions each of us have heard at some point or the other? Haven’t we all been told that once we give our boards, and score more than “Sharmaji’s beta”, life was going to be a smooth sailing one?

Well, guess who’s wrong?

The dilemma begins right after 10th, doesn’t it? The choice of streams we’ve to make, the one that’s in our best interest. And after another 2 years, we’re faced yet again with a similar choice- the choice of a degree that’s going to shape our career and life eventually.

We were told to know our books in and out for board exams because that’s what the papers are based on. One year into college and the one thing I’ve come to realize is that academics is not just about books. Of course, the content we’re required to study does matter, but that’s not ALL that matters.

Wisdom is knowing what to do,

“Skill is knowing how to do it.”

A quote that I believe is apt for today’s generation.

Wisdom and skill are two ingredients that go hand in hand to conjure up a magical wonder. However, the education system and all the norms that revolve around us concentrate on the importance of wisdom, forgetting that skill is what boosts it. We’re taught what to do, but not how to do it. Do want to be put in a situation where we have a plan and still do not have the resources to implement it? I don’t think so.

It’s been predicted that in a few more years, skills are what will make one a prospective employee in the eyes of an employer. Club wisdom to skill and give yourself a “skilling” makeover! Unlock the deadly combination of the two aspects and voila! You’re all good to go! There are no boundaries to the skills you can acquire, do not stop at any point. Make ample use of the resources you’re getting, do not lose on it!

In this 21st century that we’re living in, there is a requirement for skill along with knowledge. Skills that give shape to our knowledge. Skills that develop our personality and make us individuals who are ready for the ever competitive world out there. These skills will serve as our armour in the battlefield, if that’s a way to put it!

    I think other than academics your personality also matters so any other type of activity or hobby helps shapes a person’s attitude towards life.

    It is true that skills help you in many ways. The best time to develop or learn a skill is while schooling or when you are in college.
