What life skills can be learnt as an open learner?

In some ways open learning is all about developing life skills. The biggest being to lead one’s own life. Since nothing comes to them on a platter – they get into planning, doing, exploring, experimenting, reflecting, failing, … the list goes on.
We realise education is not about some external curriculum, but about discovering and developing oneself. The contents of life by itself do not matter or may even keep changing, what matters is perhaps is to live life as a exciting and enriching adventure.
