These essential skills are never taught in school, but they will pay dividends for your entire life.
“Anyone who stops learning is old whether at 20 or 80.Anyone who keeps learning stays strong.” — Henry Ford
We often focus only on learning skills that are directly pertinent to our jobs during the busy workweek.
Wealthy and successful people, on the other hand, never stop reaching for new heights and learning new skills, even if a teacher or boss isn’t telling them to.
The ultra-successful know that there are some other skills outside of their job description that can also immensely improve their wealth and their life. Well after they graduate, they’re still constant learners.
Start off by implementing one or two of these skills into your daily routine, and you’ll start to notice a massive difference in your success:
1) Thinking of your time as money
As Jim Rohn once said, “Either you run the day, or the day runs you.”
Time is one of our few non-renewable resources — we only have a finiteamount of it every day. Without learning to manage your time, you let urgent tasks and other people control how you spend your life.
You don’t have to turn into a Debbie Downer, but viewing your time as moneyis increasingly vital as we try to fit more and more into our daily lives. With everyone clamoring to achieve the ever-evasive “work-life balance,” it’s more important than ever to learn when it’s better to delegate a task rather than do it yourself. By doing this, you won’t only stay sane, but you’ll see your wealth pile up in the process.

2) Scheduling your energy
With social media screaming at us from our phones, tablets, and laptops all day, it’s difficult to filter out the noise and actually achieve what we’ve set out to do. In fact, CNBC columnist Mark Fahey estimates that since Facebook launched 12 years ago, it has cost the U.S. economy as much as $3.5 trillion in productivity.
Rather than trying to avoid distractions completely, science suggests we should schedule around our energy instead. For instance, Dr. Travis Bradberry suggests doing around 50 minutes of work followed by around 15 minutes of rest. Even if you don’t want to follow his schedule, being aware of and prioritizing around your times of maximum productivity (and avoiding theinfamous afternoon slump) is a vital skill to learn…
