The New Year is almost not new anymore. Along with thinking about new years, I’ve been thinking about new words.
A word that caught my attention about a year ago is lifehacker. I think it means someone who finds short cuts to take care of life’s continuing problems and irritations. It seems to imply admiration and respect for the skill of neutralizing life’s challenges. It also seems to imply a person who hoards their time for the good stuff by hacking through crap quickly.
Do you have a clearer way to describe a lifehacker?
I’d love to hear about intriguing new words you’ve heard.
