What are Critical Skills?

 

 In history, man's character has always been of value to society.  A great character was something that was aspired for and it was generally assumed by civilization that your word is your honor, your character testifies for your abilities.  Yet during the early 20th century society changed from a productive society to a consuming society. "Emphasis shifted from a focus on virtue and character to a focus on self and material possessions. The vision of self-sacrifice began to yield to that of self-realization.”*

The result roughly a century later is a society with uncertainty about ethics, regarding norms and what is expected from man to thrive.  This is prevalent in the media, both mainstream and social.  Corruption, dishonesty, the absence of reliability, negativity, the lack of forgiveness and authenticity are all prevalent in our everyday lives.  It effects our work life, the way we bring up our children, how we negotiate, how we treat others as well as the benchmark we set for generations to follow.

The list of Critical Skills are very fluid, but once researched the core remains the same. 

  • Reliability
  • Forgiveness
  • Authenticity
  • Honesty
  • Loyalty
  • Perseverance
  • Compassion
  • Self-discipline

are all part of this list comprising of 20 skills in total.  It is not the case that we have forgotten what it means, we are just out of habit of applying it in our lives.

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. - Abraham Lincoln
