    Lets Share and Discuss-
    #Strategies to sharpen the skills
    #Common Methods Employed by the people to Sharpen the skills

    I think -
    # Practice is one important factor
    # Also I tried playing Strategy games where I can use my Strategic Skills to use ...So games can be another useful tool
    #Experience of other people..Some lessons can be easily learned analysing their effect on others..this can help you gain an insight and add to your skills in one way or other..

    I go by the famous saying that goes...

    "Try, Try, and Try Again"

    I feel that there is no way to get better at something other then practicing.

    I agree with noreturn here. Practice makes perfect. I keep practicing what I do best over and over. Another secret of sharpening my skill is asking. I ask questions and I ask for advice too.

    basically there are two major way to improve yourself - knowledge and practice. Practice make perfect but without knowledge support, it will always fail. Read more, plan out how to apply them into the real, practice, then check the result and review the result, analyse it and plan for the next, repeat the progress and you will know more and more

    For me, I sharpen my skills by thinking new ideas being logical. This how it helps me. And also practice in a proper way is always helpful.

    Just by practice.

    "Practise makes pefect" is an annoying quote but it's very true.

    Practice it in many ways in daily life.
    Read books about it, search on the web, try every method and practice taking advantage of any chance.

    By learning from previous mistakes and by working hard on that subject.I also keenly observe others so that i can learn something from them in both positive and negative.I think one can learn very much by observing others specially if someone is doing something wrong we know that we don't need to try that things.

    I sharpen my skills by learning with my own mistakes and experiences:)
    no one knows you better than yourself so feel that you are the one and you are the best:)believe in you:)
    dont try to pull anyone behind,try to move ahead from others:)
    the most imp thing is that
    "try to become better next day from the last day"
    that means
    improving yourself a little from the last day of yours is the key to success:)

    Hello,
    During my career I have had a number of opportunities to rise up the corporate ladder which have passed me by. People who were hired at the same time as me are two, three and even four rungs above me another follows
    1,Set aside time for learning.
    2,Pay attention.
    3,Fine tune.
