What are your favorite tools?
Tools can be physical things to get a job done. They come in all shapes and sizes for all kinds of jobs, such as a pen, brush, skillet, sewing machine, computer or camera.
Tools can also refer to skills that help you do something, such as first aid, a foreign language, self-defense, project management, a computer program or dance moves. For example, I use project management tools to get projects done at work and speaking Spanish helps me travel in Latin America (usually).
Personal and professional skills can make a big difference in the quality of one's life. Various skills can help you get organized, stay sane, feel healthy, get or keep a job, make friends, save money or feel excited about life. The best news is that most skills can be learned and developed throughout your life!
