Lifehacking, Intentional Living, and Common Sense Prepperism survive and prosper in daily life.

 

 

Q. Lewis, I am overwhelmed by the chaos of ordinary life. I am just surviving day-to-day, doing the same old same old. I find myself short of time, short of space, and short of money, while I’m a prisoner of a busy schedule that is taking me nowhere.

I’m tired of living my life like a hamster on a wheel, stuck in overwhelm, running around in circles and getting nowhere? Do you have any suggestions?

 

 

 

 

A. I suggest you explore Lifehacking and Intentional Living.

 

 

Let me explain what these things are…

life hack (or life hacking) is any trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method that increases EEPPSA (effectiveness, efficiency, precision, productivity, and self-awareness), in all walks of life. Originally the term was primarily used by computer experts who suffer from information overload or those with a playful curiosity in the ways they can accelerate their workflow in ways other than programming.

Though the terms hackhacking, and hacker have a long history of ambiguity it has become a common term among preppers, and those with a passion for Intentional Living.

 

 

 

 

The History of Life Hacking

The original definition of the term “hack” is “to cut with rough or heavy blows.” In the modern vernacular “hack” it began as a way to describe an inelegant but effective solution to a computer problem. Today it is used to describe short cuts to solving any problem whether analog or digital. Before the term life hack came into common usage the word “kludge” or  “kluge” was used to describe a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that might be clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend, and hard to maintain. This term was commonly used in diverse fields such as computer science, aerospace engineering, as internet slang, and even in evolutionary neuroscience, and government. It is similar in meaning to the naval term, jury rig that came into common usage in the 19th century.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Examples of life hacks include:

  • making your own Kombucha, repurposing
  • virtually anything, using barter instead of cash to get what you want and need,
  • buying things you need especially food) in bulk and on sale, becoming organized, priority planning,
  • time management and anything, or creating anything of use by taking
  • random or seemingly useless pieces of anything and sticking them together to create something useful. This is commonly called a Macgyverism in reference to a television show where the main character used life hack, after life hack to solve complex problems

How important is lifehacking in our present state of affairs?

The American Dialect Society voted lifehack (one word) as the runner-up for “most useful word of 2005” behind podcast.  The word “life hack” was also added to the Oxford Dictionaries Online in June 2011.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many of us who enjoy cooking already understand the concept of Kitchen hacks, though we might not have used the term. A kitchen hack, also known as a food hack, is a technique used by home cooks and professionals to make food preparation tasks easier, faster, or more efficient. Although the concept of a kitchen hack predates the coinage of either term. Multiple kitchen hacks posted to social media have become popular, and some have been shown not to work, not to be worth the effort, or to be dangerous.

 

 

 

 

Life hacking is not some cheapskate approach to frugality, thrift, or self-help. Life hacking is respected and used throughout the world. Examples of life hacking including

 

  • Intentional Living – “Intentional living means understanding your fundamental beliefs and values, and then actively living your life in line with those values.” Tapping into those values on a daily basis marks the difference between living life passively and living it intentionally. Many who choose this path are master lifehackers, living a minimalist lifestyle with little waste, extreme EEPPSA, and rich experience of nature, culture, and the arts. They tend to appreciate sustainability, and are often highly educated,  creative, and innovative and want for little though their cash income is usually modest.

  • Juggaar – Jugaad (alternatively “Jugaadh” , “Jagaad” or “Jugaar“) is a colloquial South Asian (جگاڑ) word, which refers to a non-conventional, frugal innovation. It could also refer to an innovative fix or a simple work-around, a solution that bends the rules, or a resource that can be used in such a way. It is also often used to signify creativity: to make existing things work or to create new things with limited resources. Jugaad is increasingly accepted as a management technique and is recognized all over the world as an acceptable form of frugal engineering at peak.

  • Urawaza – An urawaza (裏技, meaning “secret trick”) is a quirky, ingenious technique that optimizes an everyday activity like cleaning up spills, preventing odors, or folding laundry. In Japan, Urawaza has been shared by word of mouth and passed down to descendants for centuries. In the aftermath  of World War II, Urawaza helped the population make the best use of scarce resources, like using alcohol instead of more expensive household solvents for cleaning.   The term itself became globally popularized when video-gamers in the 1980s began sharing their game-related Urawaza online.

    Modern Urawaza include:

    • chilling a cellphone to increase its battery life,

    • keeping sugar dry by adding grains of uncooked rice,

    • practicing one’s bowling throw with an iron (pointing to a specific target) to develop aim before getting used to the weight of an actual ball.

 

Many Cultures and countries outside Japan have similar folk wisdom under different names. American columnist Heloise has published many such tips, including many kitchen hacks in her column “Hints from Heloise”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see life-hacking expressed through  Intentional Living, and Common Sense Prepperism can literally transform your life.  It can maximize your potential at the lowest possible cost.
