Thoughts On Becoming A Renaissance Man or Woman

The term “Renaissance Man” has come to mean “a present-day man who has acquired profound knowledge or proficiency in more than one field”.  The goal of Save Our Skills is to produce more Renaissance Men.  To do this we will be producing instructional content as well as linking to good information from other sources, we can’t all be experts.

However we do feel that having as broad a range of knowledge as possible is a good thing.  Even knowing just the very basics of something will help when you do need to have someone else do something for you.  You will be better able to describe what you want done, will have a better idea of what a fair price is and will be less likely to be taken advantage of.

Save Our Skills will not just focus on primitive skills, but will also cover many of the things that used to be taught in Shop Class and Home Economics, not to mention what grandparents and parents used to teach their children.

Considering the world we not live in we will also be covering skills related to modern-day life.  Things related to computers, the internet, online security and digital photography will be covered under the category Digital Skills.

Even if you never become proficient at a skill, at least learn about as many things as you can.  Skills are an asset that can not be taken away from you or taxed and will pay dividends for the rest of your life.

So please subscribe to this blog and either begin or continue learning more skills in your life.
