What skills can I acquire that will make me more valuable and more hire-able in the years to come? The world is getting tougher and I want to make sure I always have a job - hopefully, an interesting one.

I'm in my mid-30s and have been considering a career change but also thinking of acquiring some new skills piece by piece, to make myself more valuable in a concrete way. What skills/pieces of knowledge can I acquire (by taking a couple of classes or reading a few books) that will increase my value exponentially? HTML, Spanish? Farming? Shop class?
I want to be someone who adds value in real ways. What skills can help me do that?
Assume I suck at math and am incredibly disorganized.
