Social Skills

Social skills are meta-skills.

They will make you happier, healthier, and wealthier.

Robert Waldinger conducts the longest study in the world on health and happiness.
He summarizes the key to happiness and health like this:

Diener & Seligman reach the same conclusions while Robert Greene says that success without social intelligence is not real and will not last.

The bottom line, interpersonal skills, and meaningful relationships are top priorities in a successfully happy life.
