Stop Trying to Hack Your Way Through Life

We're in the final stretch! Five days left of #theampersandproject!

Our culture is obsessed with hacking our way through life. We look for tools and tips and tricks to make our lives faster, more efficient, more productive. Sure, that may work for some stuff, but when it comes to the important things, like work and relationships and becoming a better person, it simply doesn't work that way. You don't always get to take the short cut; in fact, you shouldn't want to.

Over to you: Where are you seeking a "shortcut" or a "hack" in your life? Is it really going to help you or is it just a distraction or an excuse for not doing the real work yourself?
