Today we will talk about ‘Top 20 Professional Life Hacks That Will Blow Your Mind’. Perhaps, technology such as smartphones, PC, tablets, etc made us behave disrespectfully because we’re so much busy scrolling through the newsfeed.
Alright, “Little Things Matters the MOST”, that is a phrase I learned throughout this 20-years of life. I can completely relate my daily life experiences to that phrase. If we look around appreciate people with gratitude and be kind, we will definitely see a different kind of world.
You might be wondering ‘How little things can matter?’ or ‘What kind of little things Readzon’s author is talking about?’ or ‘How will it affect our way of living?’. Hold on! I am talking about Hacks, LIFE HACKS. These hacks will help you understand how to behave like a pro either in public or private. They will also help you understand how to respect someone’s privacy. Without further ado! Let’s get into it!
TOP 20 PROFESSIONAL LIFE HACKS
Hack #1 – Take off your sunglasses if you are talking to anyone in the street. It is a sign of respect because more eye contact is as important as your speech.
Hack #2 – After a job interview, if asked “Do you have any questions?” always say “Yes, just out of curiosity, what made my application stand out against my competitors?”. The interviewer can be impressed. It makes you seem different from the rest of the people who never ask a question either in class or during an interview.
Hack #3 – Want to get rid of bad breath? Brushing your teeth is important but it’s more important to brush your tongue. That’s where bad breath starts.
Hack #4 – Never interrupt a speaker, especially in this TONE! Because Your body language will also say a lot about your attitude too so pay attention to that. (Yeah, borrow some manners from me, I’d be happy to give them to you, literally hate being interrupt).
Hack #5 – If you’re working online and can’t stop getting distracted by your phone, switch it off and put it in a different room. This really works, I tried it myself and found it productive. Your mind will no longer ask to check on Instagram or Facebook newsfeed because we’re too lazy to get up.
Hack #6 – Broaden your vocabulary range. You’ll come off as more intelligent. But don’t to the point where you sound elitist. Respect other people’s opinions as well, do not try to behave as you know everything. Not everyone has 100% knowledge or information.
Hack #7 – If your friend covers the bill now, you pay next time. If your friend does you a favor, you owe them one. Obviously, don’t just stand there and eat on other people’s expenses. Some people would say ‘We’re friends, don’t mind that’ NO! it doesn’t mean one of you always pays and the other one always eating.
Hack #8 – You can win someone’s heart by praising or complimenting her/him in a group, it works like magic. Really, It does work like magic! Try this once in a lifetime, praise someone you just met and see for yourself how it feels what impact would it leave on someone’s day.
Hack #9 – Mind your own business unless anything involves you directly — simply stay neutral and out of it. I hate such people who never mind their own business. I got a life, you got life, why don’t you live your life and let me live mine peacefully? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you don’t put your nose in the way of my living? It would be much easier for both of us. SO please, STAY out of my life! It’s none of your business.
Hack #10 – Always open the door for the person coming behind you. It doesn’t matter if it is a guy or a girl. You don’t grow small by treating someone well in public. That’s what we call pure manners. Sounds great.
Hack #11 – When someone shows you a photo on their phone, don’t swipe left or right. You never know what’s next. This is the most ridiculous habit of people. That’s why I never show my cell-phone to anyone I know would swipe either left or right (ABAY SALAY!). Just see the picture and give me back my phone!
Hack #12 – Treat the janitor or waiter with the same respect as the CEO. Nobody is impressed at how rudely you can treat someone below you but people will notice if you treat them with respect. People notice you when you treat your inferiors with equal kindness.
Hack #13 – Maintain eye contact when speaking to someone. In my case, I need to work on that. I never managed to maintain eye contact while speaking. I have to work on that.
Hack #14 – Respect different political opinions — agree to disagree.
Hack #15 – Can’t think of what to get someone for their birthday or as a gift? Tell them you already got them a gift and to guess what it is. They will tell you some ideas of what they want. To be honest, this hack literally got me by surprise. I never knew I could do such a thing. Good idea though.
Hack #16 – Never give advice until you’re asked.
Hack #17 – If you’ve borrowed money, return it before the other person remembers lending it to you. It shows your integrity and character. I don’t know why I feel embarrassed while asking for the money I lend to someone.
Hack #18 – Praise publicly. Criticize privately. Yeah, definitely, encourage people publicly, tell them about their mistakes privately.
Hack #19 – Say “thank you” when someone is helping you.
Hack #20 -Set an alarm 30 minutes before you go to bed.
