Life Hacking Not So Good?

Maybe stop trying so hard to find shortcuts to “hack” your life. The best things are hard. Invest in the journey. Just sayin'.

Why You Should Stop Lifehacking and Invest in the Journey by Rick Roll

Since I’m wrapping up reading The 4-hour Workweek by Tim Ferris right now this blog post by Rick Roll is very timely. I like the ideas held within 4HWW and look to implement some of them in my own life, but I have to say, in my opinion this focus and fascination with “life hacking” is a bit disturbing. It also reminds me of something Mike Rowe said to a “Dirty Jobs” fan recently, check it out, it’s quite profound. I really don’t have anything more to say on the subject, just wanted to share. :)
