Y Skills Institute is a global educational organization which seeks to provide everyone with the key skills for success in every area of life, especially for lifelong learning. Our aim is to develop and promote effective education and to make it an integral part of all educational activities.
Our world is rapidly changing from the one we used to live in. New technologies are being developed daily, and this kind of progress has a lot of advantages. However, it does not mean that everything is getting easier. Of course, we can already make video calls and talk to people overseas or attend lectures without leaving home. And yet, at the same time, we must also understand that these technologies are developing too quickly and that, one day, we won’t be able to keep up with all the requirements of the new world.
By 2040, it is predicted that robots will perform forty-five percent of all work, and a half of the jobs we currently have won’t exist any longer. Only intellectually skilled workers will have well-paid jobs. That is why we have to be on our toes if we want to have a decent job and a successful career.
People will need to able to interact with information, to think critically, to be self-disciplined and to be more efficient in everything to compete with automation. For this to be done, we will have to upgrade our knowledge every ten years, which would mean going to universities more than once in our lifetime.
“The most important thing that I have learned how to do is to learn quickly. I’ve learned how to learn. Because there's not one lesson. Unfortunately, there's not even a thousand lessons, “ said Brian Chesky, the CEO and co-founder of the hospitality exchange service Airbnb. “There're literally 10,000 or 100,000 decisions that I've had to make -- many of them are very small -- and they're literally every hour for the last eight years. I think learning how to learn is incredibly important.”
Thus, first of all, an expert must have essential skills, and only then can he or she master the right disciplines or technologies when the need arises.
Y Skills Institute specializes in fundamental education like this and prepares people for living in the new world. We believe that every person should have this kind of skill; more important, we believe that it is everyone’s right to get these skills.
We can help you to become a person you want to be — the expert you want to be. We surround ourselves with everyone who shares our views and values, and with the people who already benefit in this field.
“The thing I learned at Indiana that was more important than anything else was that I learned how to learn. And learning became far more important to me because the one certainty of business is that it’s always gonna be changing. If you are not always learning, to this minute, if I’m not continuously learning, if I’m not just absorbing as much as I can absorb, someone else is going to kick my ass. Right?” said As Mark Cuban, a businessman and investor, the owner of NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, in his interview. “So you talk about paranoia. The greatest source of your paranoia should be knowledge. If someone else knows more than you do, and if you are not learning, if you don’t know how to learn, if you don’t have a thirst for learning - you’re out of luck.”
So once a person knows how to learn, they will be able to develop many other basic skills, such as problem-solving, decision-making, goal setting, critical and creative thinking, networking, negotiating, etc.
All these skills are an integral attribute of a successful person in the new era. Becoming this successful person isn’t a dream, it’s everyone’s opportunity.
Nowadays, people waste time using ineffective and out-of-date educational approaches.
Such silly attitudes to learning, work, and life in general can’t exist any longer. Having access to almost any information in any place in the world, people have to become efficient in their actions.
Thus, Y Skills Institute was created to help everyone manage their time wisely, broaden their outlook, become self-aware and able to set goals so that they can achieve any target they have set up for themselves.
Y Skills Institute is ready to give a helping hand to anyone and everyone who desires to get prepared for the modern world.
Expending your energies by doing useless or inefficient things is the worst enemy of modern people, because your time is the most precious thing you can possess. It has never been so difficult and so easy, at the same time, to succeed in something as it is today.
Choose the right direction, and your goals will be achieved. Today, you are the creator of your future professional and personal life, so don’t hesitate and start becoming whoever you want to be.
