re: What is the most valuable skill your old man taught you?
How to harvest all the things nature provides to eat, and how to fix anything or make/build it yourself.

My father was a contractor, so I can do pretty much any home repair myself. I'll only do it in a pinch, though. I don't have the time or energy to do a lot of it these days.

No matter what, keeping pushing. Life is hard, it doesn’t get easier, don’t let them break you. No matter what.

Successful people are the ones that don't make the same mistakes twice. The most successful people not only learn from their own mistakes, but also learn from others mistakes.

No specific skills that I can think of, but before he passed away, he imparted many pearls of wisdom that have served me extremely well.

Never put your head on the pillow until everything that needs to be done that day is done.

A leader's job isn't to make the right decision, but rather to make sure the right decision gets made.

When visiting somewhere, always leave it just as clean as how you found it.

Make your bed first thing every morning.

Never spend beyond your means. When you do splurge on something, make sure it's on family/friends/experiences and not material goods.

There's a hell of a lot more, but these are the first ones that come to mind.

Ha! Thanks for the reminder. This was a big one too. People will always make mistakes. The key is to never make the same mistake twice.

How to control my temper.

How to stay cool headed when shite hits the fan.

That when you think things are beyond fixing and all hope it lost, "this too shall pass".

How to throw a punch was very useful when I was young.

"Work smarter, not harder" has been valuable as an adult. All of my friends have learned that from him too. I swear at his funeral if they ask the pallbearers to carry him out to the grave, everyone will laugh and say he would never do it that way.
