In today’s fast-paced, always-on, over-messaged digital age, many of us find ourselves overwhelmed and inundated, searching for new ways to streamline our busy lives, for example meal planning via app, using a car share instead of driving yourself or automating repetitive tasks around the house, etc. But there are a lot of things that we cannot influence. Imagine you could change them!
We want to hear about your best hacks for improving modern life by making it simpler. These methods can be real – ones you’ve already adopted in your life, or aspirational – ones you think we could use in the future.
Be sure to share:
1. What the words “simple” and “simplicity” mean to you.
2. An example of a chore or activity that feels overly complicated, taxing, or like a waste of time – something that seems to make your life harder than it needs to be (no longer than 20 seconds of the whole video!).
3. How you might change or simplify this chore or activity in order to improve your life. What makes your solution better and simpler?
Focus on solutions that don't exist yet, rather than on available technology and problems that have been solved with it!
Be forward thinking, not retrospective.
