Life hacks (Productivity): Make a Playlists
Rafael Gurkovsky, Life Hacks
Have you seen Inception where Leonardo DiCaprio uses a song to time his way into a dream?
When it reaches the chorus, he knows it's almost time to wake up from the dream. You can do this too (while awake, of course) by creating a playlist that tells you whether you're on time or not. Try putting together a 30-minute playlist and start playing it the minute you wake up. The goal is to make sure that before the last song in the playlist ends, you're already in your car and driving to work. You can also link the songs to the activity you're supposed to be doing (breakfast while listening to Neil Young, The Black Keys while taking a bath, etc.) allowing you to easily judge whether you're slacking or not.
