If you’re one of the 100 million users who use Spotify, you probably know that you can browse through hundreds of playlists to find the perfect songs for whatever it is you’re doing. You can search through genres, decades, and also mood.
The “Focus” section is particularly helpful for the professional. From “Peaceful Piano”, “Intense Studying”, “Acoustic Concentration”, and more, you’ll be able to knock out that project in no time without the distractions that come from music that should probably just stay on your party playlist.
In today’s business world, marketers have to stand out more than ever. This means your resume should be as eye-catching as it is reflective of your capabilities.

You can choose from a wide collection of beautiful and powerful templates that are easy to customize. It’s free to personalize and only $1 to download, which can save you a ton of time and energy, rather than creating your own visual resume. So land your dream job, or at least work towards it, with Canva.
3) Goal Deadlines
Now this simple suggestion may actually prove to be the most beneficial life hack yet. We all have goals. Some big, some small, and some nearly impossible. These goals should drive a good amount of our daily energy. Writing these goals down is a good practice, but in itself is usually not enough.
The act of assigning deadlines to your written goals will force you to think about what it will take to accomplish them and what tasks you need to prioritize. Know that it is okay to miss a deadline and that your goals are likely to change as you go. You might be surprised at just how much more you get done!
There ya go! Some simple yet effective hacks to make your days more pleasant. Enjoy the weekend, get outside, and recharge for next week since you are now even more equipped to take it on. Be sure to check out previous Friday Hacks for some more quick tips.
