What is Lifehacking?

For me, lifehacking is a spicy mix of time management, knowledge management, networking and personal development.

To get a great taste of lifehacking, look at it as a bit of Web 2.0, combined with a drop of MacGyver and seasoned with a flavour of fun 🙂


Lifehacking originates back to 1994, when Danny O’Brien, a journalist, first mentions it during a presentation to a number of ‘geeks’.

His first use of lifehacking is about geeks who are using little smart applications to automate routine jobs, or to simply make it a little bit easier to work. Examples are shell scripts and batch files.

Some other people started to use this term, like Merlin Mann (founder of 43folders.com) And Gina Trapani, editor of lifehacker.com, a very interesting website on lifehacking.

Let me give your some examples of lifehacking:

Read 3 times faster in 15 minutes

View 200 images in 20 seconds

Write 100 personalized emails in 1 hour

Worst-case scenario when traveling

Genius Shortcuts is a perfect example of lifehacking.

The Genius Shortcuts seminars and workshops help you take control of your time. Using the same tips, tricks and tools I’ll teach you, I went from 115 hours of hard work to 40 hours of joy – and 30% more income.

I also write blogs on lifehacking and host a radio show (The Lifehacking Show, the easiest way of life!).

You can try lifehacking for yourself with my FREE eCourse.

If you want to take your action one step further, then sign up for one of the upcoming Genius Shortcuts seminars or workshops happening in New Zealand.
