Dear Lifehacker, Would you be able to suggest some merchandise to put my small business logo on? (Aside from the obvious calendar and business card options.) I want something useful like a mug, but that’s cool/quirky enough to stand out and be noticed. The aim is to get people talking about our brand without having to spend a fortune. Any ideas?
Dear Lifehacker, I have a habit of coming up with an idea, and then not actually following through with it. I have a specific project that I have really wanted to do for a long time, but I have never actually made an effort to make it happen. I think my main reasons for not doing this are fear of failure and a general sense of being easily distracted. What are some good ways to force yourself to see a project through to completion, despite fear of failure? Thanks, Long Deferred
Dear Lifehacker, I never got around to filling out the Australian census on census night (I tried a few times, but the website wasn’t working.) I was wondering what the odds are of me actually receiving a fine from the ABS? If they send me a letter and I ignore it, what happens next? Also, does the fact that the website was down on census night mean I’m off the hook?
Dear Lifehacker, I want to set up some security cameras to deter would be thieves but they cost an arm and a leg. I’ve checked out some dummy ones, and must say they look extremely convincing. My question is, if I install fake security cameras and get robbed, would it give my insurance company an excuse not to pay me?
Dear Lifehacker, I understand how useful it is to have a mentor, or someone whose experience I can benefit from. Once I’ve found someone though, how do I ask them? Do you just email them and ask, or is there a better way to make your case? Sincerely, Desperately Seeking Senpai
Dear Lifehacker, I get up at 5am for work, and when I get home I’m cooking, cleaning, helping with homework, spending time with my family and then I’m in bed at 9pm. If I were to exercise daily, it would be cutting into my bedtime, so I want to know – for general health, am I better off getting an hour’s exercise in before hitting the hay, or will the extra hour’s sleep be better for me? Alternatively, can you see a time in my schedule where I might be able to fit some physical activity in?
