Universally useful skills

Hey, Sebastian.

In a few of your posts, you mention "Learning universally useful skills". Could you elaborate? I think I have the basic idea - public speaking, writing, negotiation, etc. - but what would you include?



Hi Matt,

When's the last time someone gave you too much change?

I travel a lot.

Not all countries have the same standardization and cash controls as the United States or Western Europe. In most of the world, actually, everything is pretty ad hoc.

Part of this means, at least 5-10 times per year I'm having someone hand me the wrong amount of change or otherwise screwing up billing pricing.

Funny enough, no one ever hands me too much change. No one ever accidentally marks a bill as paid that isn't paid.

But the reverse happens. Often.
