3 Skills You Can Master In A Minute Or Less

3 Minutes, 3 Skills You’ll Use For Life.

 


1 – Spot Bad Fruit Instantly

Remember these two tips when scouting Strawberries and Oranges to never go home with the bad ones. Always smell strawberries before buying. If they have a (good) smell, then they will taste just as divine. If they have no smell, they won’t be up to par.

Always choose the heaviest oranges. A lighter orange has less juice, and will taste accordingly.


2 – Speed Read

The trick to skimming through a page is to remove the voice in your head—it takes a lot longer for your brain to process words into sound then to simply decipher them visually. Focus first on reading without that voice, then work on reading a few words at a time. You’ll be buzzing through pages in no time.

 

 

3 – Behead A Champagne Bottle (With A Blade)

Grab a knife and find a spot center-stage (and a safe distance) from your guests. Grab a bottle that has been chilled up-side down and remove both the foil and the muselet. Hold the bottle in your non-dominate hand, with the seam pointing upwards. Position your knife at a small upwards angle on the seam and push the knife outwards on the cork until the pressure cracks the neck. Join your guests in cheer.
