The most essential truth about quick life hacks is that they cost us. They cost us the very learning process that would deliver us real results, in other words. To cop a phrase from my military career, Time in Grade, Time in Service. Time delivers experience (which CANNOT be gained sitting on our collective butts searching for life hacks) and the inevitable, critical failures that are part and parcel of earning our way to whatever you and I define as success, or happiness, or whatever. Life hacks, to my mind, over promise and under deliver.
