All of us have something unique about us. It is just a matter of time to realize it.
It is never too late to learn something that helps us in the long run. With the world moving towards digital platforms and digital technologies, learning how to work on a computer – even if it is some basic stuff helps in the long run.
When I was growing up one of the skills that our parents felt would help us get a job was typewriting and shorthand. Somehow, I ended up learning it and became good at it, albeit needed to wake up at 5 am to get to the early morning classes before my daily routine started! These skills helped when I started learning computers and started working on software development. The speed to type and do it correctly helps!
Today is the day and age of digital platforms and software. Knowing a Microsoft word, using a powerpoint to prepare a presentation, doing your home budget over Excel software, have all become part of life for many. Investing in learning some of these helps us expedite our journeys to learn something or share something effectively and soon. While some maybe video game developers, software engineers, network specialists, or technologists who look at gadgets differently, they are all ahead of the curve.
