  • The word lifehack often makes people go goo-goo gah-gah, but what

    the heck does it actually mean?

    To me, a lifehack is a simply a more efficientway to do or use something that gets us closerto our ideal outcome.

    Lifehacks are attractive because they possess the ability to improve

    our reality. This is why I created this PDF to pass along a little nugget

    of information that hopefully makes your life just a little bit better.

    63 Lifehacks to Supercharge Your Life 1

    Welcome

  • I cant take credit for all the awesome sauce contained in this book.

    The ideas and tactics youll find in this book come from many sources

    everyone from thought leaders I look up to, to college friends who

    have a similar proclivity for getting the most out of life.

    Many of these were actually crowdsourced from an online community

    I created called HackingNYC.com, where motivated lifehackers share

    the best tips they find to improve their lives as they encounter them.

    In all instances, I tried to denote Hack Credit to provide proper attri-

    bution to the source from which I first encountered the hack.

    Ok, lets get on with the show!
