    To not only be self sustainable, but to earn a good living -- enough to be able to provide adequate food, shelter, clothing, education and medical care for you and your loved ones.

    Managing Money Skills

    To not only be able to do simple math, but handle money, budget, spend and save wisely.

    To be able to not only write, but communicate well with others about your thoughts, feelings, ideas, opinions, tastes, preferences, values and beliefs.

    To find and connect with another person and commit your heart, head and resources to nurture and champion their dreams -- and have them do the same to you.

    We hope this evolving list helps spark ideas and insights.

And if you are already grown up, you can create a list of your own to reflect the needs of your environment and your dreams.

    Hey john, it's me!

    Anyway, the life skills are things that we need to learn before we are adults. That's a basic way of putting it, i think.
