1. Are you choosing to build skills that legitimately interest you? This matters if you want to maintain energy for decades.


2. Be clear on where the "crowd" is going. Go the opposite way.


3. Timely skills have a short shelf life (usually 2-4 years).


4. Timeless skills (e.g., psychology, persuasion, copywriting) endure no matter the time or context.


5. Build Timeless skills to ensure you're always ahead and relevant, even as our digital world rapidly changes.
