When at school or university, you'll need study skills
When buying a house, communication skills and negotiation skills may be needed
You'll need to work on your employability skills to get a job
When you have a job, leadership and presentation skills may be useful, along with a whole host of other skills.
When you start a family, time management skills and organisational skills are likely to become important.
There will be times throughout your life when you'll need conflict resolution, stress-management and problem solving skills too.
