How about…?

Posted on: July 12, 2021

When I read this tweet and clicked on the link to the article, I expected to find out which life skills these student needed and why.

The article mentioned conflict management, resilience, and cross-cultural understanding as life skills. Is resilience a skill? It seems more like an attitude first. How about cross-cultural understanding? It sounds more like a value to me.

I am not making an argument for pedantic semantics. I am for saying what we mean and meaning what we say. Otherwise we will have different takeaways from what is supposed to be common ground.

That aside, the “skills” were mentioned in the headline and listed in one line in the second paragraph. They were not elaborated upon in the remaining 24 paragraphs of the article. How about a life skilled value of delivering what you promised?
