17. Why I Hate Hacks


Listen to the episode here!



I have no clue when everyone started talking about “hacks”…..but I absolutely hate that word. I see it everywhere…”5 hacks to improve your mood”….”#1 hack to save you time”….”top 3 productivity hacks.” One definition of hack is “an inelegant solution to a problem.” Inelegant solution. Don’t get me wrong…I am all about quick…I am all about solutions….but more importantly, I am ALL about setting up systems, tools and processes that work…that grow…that stick with you for life. I want elegant solutions. And…the simpler, the better. I don’t want a short term “hack” that won’t last. I HATE the word “hack” for this reason. I have yet to see a “hack” that helped formed new, sustainable, awesome practices.
