Lifehacking for grown-ups: Strategies for coping in an insanely busy world
“Life hacking refers to any productivity trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method to increase productivity and efficiency, in all walks of life; in other words, anything that solves an everyday problem in a clever or non-obvious way.” So says Wikipedia (at least, it did on 7 Oct 2013).
We are all inordinately busy, and becoming increasingly so. The promised paper-free, maximum productivity workplace of the 21st century has so far proved bafflingly elusive. Leisure is a fleeting memory, or something that is in part mediated by smartphones. Technology is, in fact, proliferating. We have desktops, laptops, tablets and phones. The result is that we have more opportunities to lose more things in more ways on more devices than has ever been possible before.
If you are like many, you’ve attempted numerous strategies to get control of your information, your agenda and your life. Software tools, planning techniques, apps, technology and more have all been marshalled in the hopes of becoming more organized, more productive and more effective. And yet, many of the things that were supposed to help have not done so. Or at least, have not done so consistently.
A couple of months ago, Mark Mullaly underwent a total overhaul of his digital, organizational and personal universe. The process wasn’t pretty. The collateral damage is still being felt. But the results look promising. Join him as he shares his strategies, his stumbling blocks and his solutions. It’s as immediate and personal a case study as you are likely to find, until you do it to yourself.
