Hi I'm a long time lurker of Lifehacker, and I thought I'd contribute
back here.


Since Lifehacker is going print, why don't we go all the way and make
an organiser out of it? After all, LH is about productivity and
organisation, so that in itself makes it impressive.

Something like this: http://www.office365.co.uk/im/pim/265517.jpg ,
but more attractive etc.

Pros:
+ Section Tabs, can be clearly seen and referred to (Work,
Inspiration, PC stuff etc)
+ Modular, allows users to add their own lifehacks into the book, or
take out those they want and add it to their own organisers.
+ Modular II, allows you to bring out mini-sections of it as well.
+ Modular III, allows 'add-ons' and 'patches', which other print
format cannot allow
+ Different, stands out on the shelf both at the shop and at home,
good for sales and showing off
+ Mobile, you'd want to bring it around
+ Everything an organiser is. With the tips and articles put around
the dates, you learn something new everyday!

Cons:
- Expensive to produce, which will spill to us buyers I guess


I'm quite sure I haven't exhausted the possibilities. I'm thinking
pockets, stickers, et cetera...


What say you? :)

This is a pretty cool idea! If it's not possilble to turn it into an
full fledged organizer, how about incorporating tearaway pages with
charts or sheets corresponding to their specific sections: To-Do
Lists, Day Planner, etc.

I found this particular habit list quite helpful:

You can use something along those same lines.

How about a CD or a website with PDF files with templates for charts,
sheets, etc.. ?

This is making me think of those kits you see in kids' stores to make
crafts or play games etc.; they include a book, or are basically a
book, but bundled with extra materials.

I think a mix of Kristina's add on ideas, and zeroblades main idea
would work excellently. Adding it to the prospective T.O.C

Also, sorry for forgetting it, Smokey, that 8 habits thing is good to.
