Attitudes are skills

Three words that changed my life.

Once you realize that you can improve, amplify and refine the things that other people call attitudes, you may realize that they are skills.

Which is great news, because becoming better at a skill is something we’re able to do.

Some people call these, “soft skills.” That’s because they’re not easy to measure. But for me, they’re real skills. The skills that actually determine how far we’ll go and how it will feel to work with us as we move forward.

Akimbo is hosting the third Real Skills Conference on Saturday, October 17 from 3 to 5 pm ET. You can find all the details here.

It’s truly a conference. No keynotes, no experts, simply a group of people who want to understand what it means to level up by seeing what’s possible and then deciding to do something about it. If spending an afternoon with people like that in service of making a difference would be helpful, I hope you can join in.
