Never pass up an opportunity to LEARN a new skill
Each new skill not only brings new ways of problem solving into your arsenal of talents, it also creates new connections and pathways in your brain which makes coming up with unique ideas next time even easier to do.
A person who can both design and build a house will design a better home than a person who merely designs but has no clue how to build or a person who builds but has no idea how to design.
Every new skill also raises your self-confidence and makes you more likely to succeed at all that you attempt.
Start learning a new skill at least four times a year!
