Been thinking about the skills that are needed to survive the world. There are formulas that keep coming from various sources that talk about - 5 skills you need to survive, 10 skills to be successful, etc. To some extent, they are not wrong. But still, nobody can guarantee survival only with those, unless you have this full pack of skills for survival. What's that pack. Obviously, it's not a finite list of skills.

When to start with the last task? That's something needs more detailing. Let's do that some other time!
