The list of 54 ‘life hacks’ may seem ridiculously long, but are absolutely necessary.  We are in no way knowledgeable of all, but are ready to start checking off the list!

Here are a few samples:

9. You should know how to think critically and question the status quo.

With all this information at our fingertips, now more than ever, we need to be able to think for ourselves, question the current way of doing things, and be critical of all forms of media, government and education.

12. You should know how to manage your time.

Time management is a precise art and science, and if you haven’t studied it yet, you should. Applying these principles of time management to your life can get you back precious hours you didn’t know you had, and completely eliminate much of your productivity destroying behavior.

14. You should know how to approach and meet new people.

Even if you’re an introvert, it is important to have the ability to walk up to a new person and hold a nice conversation. Meeting people is a great way to learn new things, expand your network, and gain new opportunities in life.

20. You should know how to shut up and listen genuinely.

If you learn to do this well, you will be loved and admired, and you will understand people better. It can improve relationships drastically, and ultimately make you a more compassionate person.

25. You should know how to speak at least one or two languages besides English.

Did you know that 75% of the world does not speak English? That’s a lot of people you won’t be able to communicate with if you happen to be in an area where English isn’t their first language.  Expand your horizons and make an effort to communicate with the rest of the world. Start with Chinese!
