List to Learn

This is just a quick list of the things I’ve thought of to learn. I really don’t know much about any of these things, as I haven’t learned them yet. Any additions, as always, would be very welcome, as I’m sure that I’ve missed at least several obvious things and many more that are less so.

  • Environmental science

    • Public speaking
    • Great leaders
