    S2. Domain-Specific Skills: 

    Firstly make sure what is your domain or subject related field on which you are studying or you will pursue. Then identify what are the fields and scope in the future in such fields. Research about your domain and find out which one is crucial for you. Just filter out 4 to 5 skills then choose any of them and start to explore that skill. Choose any online courses if it is available or choose any related tutorial from YouTube as well and start to work on it at least make 1 to 2 hours to improve this skill.

    S3. Interest Specific Skills: 

    During this lockdown, you have a proper time to work on your interest. Now proper plan what are your interests, what exactly you want to do or what are good things which make you happy. 

    This might be just different from your domain-specific skills, but these need to improve and also you need to work on it because it is easier to improve than others, because you are much interested in the field on which you are working and it is very flexible to develop on you.

    Therefore just find out what exactly you do in your free time. Choose precisely any of those which is more crucial and helpful to develop your skills. 

    For example, In your free time, you are interested in reading some books or novels, now this skill can be crucial when you identify whether you are reading the book which can transform you.
