Top 1000 Things You Need To Know

Seth Godin has started a list of the 1000 things everyone should start learning as of third grade.  An interesting exercise to which I’ll add my two-cents:

  • How to make an effective argument.
  • How to negotiate.
  • How to physically defend oneself.
  • The value and power of kindness.
  • How to write basic HTML.
  • How to play at least one musical instrument.
  • The importance of social and cultural sensitivity.
  • How to make conversation.
  • How to be chivalrous.
  • How to wrap a gift.
  • How to iron (and fold) a shirt.
  • The art of a handwritten letter.
