To hack or not to hack

Everywhere you look somebody is offering a sports hack, marketing hack or other life hack. Anything to take a short cut, avoid the hard work, get an instant result.

The thing is, they don't usually work. Or if they do then the consequences cause more trouble than the thing you were trying to hack your way around.

That sports hack may boost your fitness but it gets you injured (or busted for cheating). The marketing hack boosts short term sales but long term damages your brand. Your life hack denies you experiences and learning.

If we want to get better at our thing, we need to be prepared to put in the hard work and do the miles.
