What are life hacks and why are they important?
Hacks make us think of an alternative path or solution My journey with Hacks started early before they were even called Hacks

This is about creating prioritization to your work day which is critical to success It also keeps us from an overwhelming workload
Small little tasks that go uncompleted can eat up your time
Follow the two-minute rule. If a task comes on your plate that will take less than two minutes to complete, start to finish, just do it. This keeps your list of &quot;I&apos;ll do it later&quot; tasks from piling up into an intimidating mass that takes a whole day to complete. If you hold yourself to this rule, be careful about when you open yourself to new ideas and tasks. Otherwise, you&apos;ll be interrupting your awesome rule to make time for those two-minute excursions.
Unfortunately, our brains just aren’t equipped for multitasking tasks that require brainpower. Our short-term memories can only store between five and nine things at once.
Creating time restraints will automatically increase productivity

People always tell you to write down your goals, and this can be limiting. When you write down your fears, you give them voice and you give them shape. Put them on a piece of paper, and they don&apos;t look so scary. When you compartmentalize your own fear and risk, you’ll be amazed by how much courage you have.
Great Facebook motto Action always out paces the best laid plan There is do and don’t do no try in life
If you fail at something, remember that you need to reframe failure as an outcome you didn’t expect. When you’re wrong and have to close down a project you’ve been working on, apologize to everyone that it didn’t go the way you wanted. Then learn from the mistake and move forward. Fail fast and focus on moving forward

Not to-dos; outcomes. The “rule of 3” is one of my favorite productivity rituals, and its power lies in its simplicity. Define three outcomes you want to make happen today. Not things you have to do; actual results you want to get done. Ask yourself, if it’s the end of the day, what three things do you want to have accomplished?
You likely already have a to-do list because if you didn’t, you would have a thousand commitments bouncing around in your head everyday. But it’s just as mentally taxing to keep track of everything you’re waiting for. When you maintain a list of everything you’re waiting for, you can make sure nothing slips through the cracks, and you can worry a lot less about the things you need to stay on top of.
