Find Your Skill or Hobby

This is a guide to help your choose a skill or a hobby. There is a fine line between art, craft, skills and hobbies and rather than attempting defining these terms I would split these activities in two broad categories: skill required for survival/sustainable life and all other activities people mostly do for interest. Note that some or all of these activities can be made into passion and passion into business/source of income.
