Go to Lifehacker.com and browse through their posts. You’ll see articles taking everyday objects and putting them toward an unexpected use — ad nauseum.
While subscribing to Lifehacker is a great idea, you don’t need them to give you permission to rethink what you use everyday.
And most importantly, you don’t need to only rethink the things you use…
Rethink the skills you already have.
If you can organize a closet to be neat and tidy — you can organize your day to fit the things you want to do, or organize your bucket list to get the most out of life, or organize your resume to get that interview for the career you really want.
If you can drive to work everyday — you can commit to writing everyday, or working out everyday, or pursuing that skill you’ve always envied in others but “never” have time for everyday.
If you can make ads on Facebook, run them for a week, then pick the ad that gets the most clicks (trust me, you can) — you can do the same to figure out what the most magnetic title for your book, art for your album cover, or name for your company is.
Somebody out there just made a Dog Wash out of a hose and some discarded PVC pipe. What’s your excuse?
