Celebrate the World

Celebrate the World

Lots of websites and blogs are celebrating the US holiday, Independence Day, and that’s swell! But we here at Lifehack.org realize that you’re a worldly bunch. Heck, the founder of the site is from Australia! So, in the spirit of celebrating the world, here’s a completely off-topic but very buzzed video that’s circling the blogosphere as well as the globe.

Basically, it’s a guy doing a silly dance all over the world. Look behind him, though. Look around. This is the world. I’ll grant that it’s the most beautiful parts, and not so much of the mundane, but here is a man dancing all over the world.
Where the Hell is Matt has a fascinating story behind it. What started out as a bit of a fun gag ended up becoming a marketing move for a gum company. But that doesn’t detract from the stunning visuals behind this viral video.
If I were to tie this in any way back to being a life hack, it would be to remind you that life is truly and utterly what you make of it. You are where you are by choice. Every day is a choice. Every action is a choice. Why not sneak some fun into it?Where the Hell is Matt? – [via a million other blogs]

Finding Your Inside Time

Finding Your Inside Time

An old article that is worth mentioning is called Finding Your Inside Time by David Allen.

David talks about his style on capturing your life details within a journal. By writing every action required items into your journal, you will have more freedom from detaching yourself from all those pressures. He says keeping a journal is like a core dump which can act as your stress release and spiritual in-basket:

Just making a free-form list of all the things you have attention on is a form of journaling and is at least momentarily liberating. On the most mundane level, it is capturing all of the “oh, yeah, I need to …” stuff—phone calls to make, things to get at the store, things to talk to your boss or your assistant about, etc. At this level, it doesn’t usually make for a very exciting or interesting experience—just a necessary one to clear the most obvious cargo on the deck.

I often use my journal for “core-dumping” the subtler and more ambiguous things rattling around in my psyche. It’s like doing a current-reality inventory of the things that really have my attention—the big blips on my internal radar. These can be either negative or positive, like relationship issues, career decisions or unexpected events that have created disturbances or new opportunities. Sometimes core-dumping is the best way to get started when nothing else is flowing—just an objectification of what is on my internal landscape.

This is a key point that David has emphasized in his book Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity – and it is one of the effective tools that I use daily.
