Top 4 Skills You Should Learn in 2020

For most of us, 2020 has been quite different than we expected. Staying at home for long periods of time, possibly losing jobs and similar. However, where some see problems, others see opportunities.

Being at home and having a lot of free time means that you have the time to learn new skills and potentially create your own business along the way. This pandemic can actually be beneficial to you and you can come out the other end a better individual.

We compiled a list of skills that you can learn in 2020, which can be useful and relatively easy to learn.

Simple Coding Schools

You’re probably aware that computers basically run our world. However, computers need coders to input data to them in order to work. Even though coding may seem like a complicated and difficult field to get into, there are coding schools that can teach you the basics of coding in a very short time.

Not only can you get a better understanding of how computers and similar devices work, you can actually make it your new profession. Of course, being a programmer takes a lot of hard work and continual education, but the financial compensation for such a job is more than enough to compensate you.

Basic Life Support

Giving someone CPR and performing basic life support on someone can be the difference between life and death for that person. Keeping someone alive until the EMT arrive is a noble cause. It is estimated by some experts that receiving first aid in the first minute of a heart attack or similar distress can increase the likelihood of survival by a significant margin.

However, in order to administer proper CPR and other basic life support techniques, you need to attend basic life support classes and learn the proper way to do it. Picking up this skill might be suitable for you if you are feeling altruistic, but it can also help you find a job, as there are several industries that require you to have this knowledge.

Cooking Classes

Seeing how many restaurants are either closed or operating in a reduced capacity, chances are that you will have to cook more at home. If you are familiar with the basics of cooking, good for you. All you will need to do is apply your knowledge and learn more recipes.

However, if you’re not particularly versed in cooking, you may need to step up and learn some basic culinary skills. Knowing how to cook a simple and nutritious meal can be important when the restaurants are largely closed. It can also be significantly cheaper, as fresh produce can be bought cheaply. It is also much healthier than eating fast food.

Tool Use

Do you know how to use a wrench? What the difference is between an allen wrench and the regular one is? If your answer is no, there are so many simple repairs and projects that are beyond your reach. If you find yourself having to call in a handyman to screw a loose chair or coffee table, you might just be wasting money.

You can find plenty of resources online which explain how to do basic repairs and how to use simple tools. Simple repairs don’t require too much skill and just the basic tool. However, if you encounter problems that are out of your skillset, do not push your luck and consult experts, especially if it is an electrical problem or water damage.

Learning a new skill may seem daunting at first, but when you weigh the pros and cons, it is almost always a good idea, especially if you have plenty of free time.
