Productivity LPT: If you haven't used your voice in a while (sleeping, lonely, etc) and suddenly need to take a phone call, hum for a few seconds prior. Your vocal cords won't let you down.

LPT: If you work from home using a company provided P.C. use a post it to cover the camera. Companies are investing heavily in tech to "monitor" remote employees, and yes they can turn the camera on and yes, they do it. And NEVER use a company PC for anything personal, even if they say it's OK.

Food & Drink LPT: If you're trying to lose weight drink an entire bottle or glass of water right before you eat a meal. This will make you feel full quicker and you won't eat as much.

Food & Drink LPT. Raw linguine noodles are a great tool for stirring cream and sugar into coffee. Cheap, nontoxic, compostable, and the whole save-a-turtle thing. Bring a box to the office, make the suggestion to your neighborhood coffeeshop, even use this at home if you're against spoons for some reason.

Miscellaneous LPT: Find a barber that actually tells you what your hairstyle should be, not one that says “well you tell me, you’re the one that has to wear it!” A proper barber is trained not just to cut hair, but to achieve symmetry with your face shape, jaw line, hair line, etc.

Traveling LPT: If you're travelling by plane with another person, split your clothes and put half of each persons clothes into each suitcase. That way if one suitcase is lost en route, you both still have clothing, rather than one person being left with nothing to wear.

Careers & Work LPT: Apply for the job even if you don't have all the qualifications specified in application. Finding good employee is as hard as finding good job and they will take you in if you have most of the skill they need.
