One person has crowdsourced the very best life advice from over 20 million people online

Advice. It rarely comes when needed, but often arrives unsolicited, and—when found on the internet—is almost always pointless. If only there were a way to carefully curate those ultimate life hacks, so that we could forgo the endless scrolling. But seriously, who has the time?

Luckily, one person did. And we can all benefit from his efforts.

Chris Hladczuk (aka @chrishlad) regularly shares helpful and interesting Twitter posts, but this one takes the social media cake.

Hladczuk’s now viral Twitter thread began with:

“Most advice sucks. So I crowdsourced the best from 20 million people on Reddit. Here are 10 life tips you wish you knew yesterday.”

Whether you’re looking for sound mindset tips or simply wondering how to covertly exit from a troublesome phone call, Chris’ list has some useful (not to mention entertaining) pointers.

Family Treasure

Even if the advice doesn’t stand the test of time, it’s definitely a keepsake that would last. And could maybe even create a few laughs.

Airplane Mode Hack

No more more pretending to be driving through a tunnel.

Reframing Your Day

Waking up on the wrong side of the bed doesn’t have to negatively impact the rest of the day.

Keeping Your Cool

Conflict resolution in a matter of minutes.

Venting at Work

Venting can be healthy, when given the right outlet. Perhaps there’s a better choice than the water cooler.

If You Ever Want Software Online for Free, Don’t Search for “Free.”

Per usual, if something is labeled “free” online, it usually isn’t.

“e.g.” and “i.e.” Are Not the Same

Now you can impress all your friends with your etymology prowess.

Email Address Hack

Note: This only works on Gmail.

On Arguments

This goes for online forums as well.

Anger and Mistakes

Mistakes should lead us forward, not keep us stuck in place.
