More on Basic Skills

Once you have decided which skills you consider basic and which you need to add to your repertory, go directly to WikiHow and find a tutorial on your topic. EHow is another popular online learning community. Both feature easy-to-use tutorials on all kinds of subjects, from understanding politics to carving pumpkins. While you’re there, think about sharing your own expertise by contributing a tutorial. The directions, of course, are right there.

If you’re a learning junkie like me, click on the Random Article link and see what you find. I subscribe to the WikiHow “How to of the day,” which frequently yields an fascinating juxtaposition of topics. Monday, for example, I could have chosen either How to Stop Feeling Like Your Life Isn’t Good Enough or How to Make a Beaded Lizard. Tuesday’s choices included How to Reuse an Empty Altoids Tin.

Whatever you want to learn, chances are good that someone online wants to teach you.
