Top 10 life hacks that you should know (Part 1)
1. Never give an animal to someone as a gift
You should never give an animal as a gift to someone, especially if they do not ask for one. Thrusting an animal on someone forces them to take care of another life but not everyone can afford to give it the life it deserves

2. How to start to learn a new language?
If you're trying to learn a new language try watching children's shows dubbed in that language. Children's shows tend to go over things like shapes, colors, animals, etc. and can help you learn basic words and sentences.

3. How to know who sold your info?
When you sign up for anything online, put the websites name as your middle name. That way when you receive spam/advert emails, you will know who sold your info.

4. Professional services are never free
If you have a friend or family member that provides a professional service (legal, medical, accounting, etc), always offer to pay for their service. Don't assume that they will help you for free.

5. Having trouble of self taking care
If you know someone who cares about everyone around them a lot, please, ask them if they are okay from time to time. I have seen, with time, that people that care a lot about other people, it's sometimes because they have trouble taking care of themselves.

6. If you are a manager, give praiser in public and give discipline in private.
In an old job in "Corporate America" I had a manager who would always share with employees encouragement and kind words of praise within earshot of other employees, and would offer words of critisicm and suggestions for improvement in private (in his office or a conference room). This set up an environment of positive reinforcement and gave employees respect and honesty they needed to perform at a higher level.

7. Don't try to convince when someone says no to a piece of cake
When someone says no to a piece of cake, don't try to convince them saying "it's just one piece". It's not just one piece. It's a mentally lost battle that will affect the coming battles, possibly resulting in a lost war against an unhealthy lifestyle for a person actively trying to improve.

8. Don't stay out of loyalty
After college, once you get the first job, start looking for a better job after a year or two. Don't stay out of loyalty. Because trust me, no company is loyal to their employees. Be respectful and professional, but loyalty in a company is rarely noticed and appreciated. As a person who has worked for a same company for 6 years after graduating, i found out i didn't get a single raise within it unless i ask for it every f*cking year, never got much other benefit than initially signed while studying at school. So i started applying for 5 months and finally got a job, it pays me almost 5 (edit: 4 is more accurate+ benefits such as health care, lunch, gym etc...) times as much as i used to. My friend from same school, with same seniority was getting 4 times my salary for the last 2 years already. My mistake was thinking that being loyal to this company was gonna in return make the company loyal to me, the company only wants lower costs, loyalty has no place here.

9. If you are buying headphones or speakers
If you are buying headphones/speakers, test them with Bohemian Rhapsody. It has the complete set of highs and lows in instruments and vocals.

10. Don't ask someone who tells you they don't drink alcohol.
If someone tells you they don't drink alcohol, don't ask them why. It's probably for a personal reason, and may be because they're an alcoholic. In any case, it isn't any of your business.
