My biggest life hack this year has been only using Amazon and Twitter in Firefox Focus.

Deleting dedicated apps (and not being continually logged into them via a browser) makes a huge difference to how you use a platform/service.

My 2021 "Learn something new" goal was to learn some basics of 3d modeling. I started today because I had some free time using Blender.
