21st Century Skills
Challenge: Let’s face it, the world is a big, confusing place and you’re probably having a hard time keeping up with it. A part of the problem is that the skills that you need to survive in this new economy are wildly different than they were for your parents. It’s time to start boning up on the habits and abilities you’ll need to excel in the 21st century (or at least the parts of it we’ve lived through so far). Your challenge is to use our guide to start updating your skills (these resources might help too).
